Nicole Clemens is president of Paramount Television Studios and Paramount+ original scripted series and has been a key player in the roll-out of the company’s streaming service and the success it’s enjoyed with series such as 1883, Mayor of Kingstown and Halo.

She spoke to Ed Waller about these developments, her wider programming strategy and the trends she sees shaping the industry, including the impact of Hollywood studios increasingly retaining rights to their own shows.

US premium cablenet Starz, meanwhile, is known for dramas including Outlander, Power, Becoming Elizabeth and Gaslit. Kathryn Busby, its president of original programming, is on a mission to serve female and under-represented audiences.

She spoke to Ed about her programming strategy, how Starz is aiming to become more premium while at the same time sticking to its populist, entertaining roots, and why Squid Game is the show that’s had the biggest impact on the industry in the past year.
