SVP, Originals

When “The Handmaid’s Tale” won the Emmy for best drama in 2017, it surprised prognosticators. It was also a coronation for Hulu as a major source of original programming and a validation for Erwich, who had gambled that a smart adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s science-fiction classic would resonate with contemporary viewers. Since then, the streaming service has continued to go big with original content under his watch, with such new series as “The Act,” “Pen15,” “Shrill” and documentary “Minding the Gap,” which earned Hulu its first Oscar nomination.
