CBS Corporation


Chief Creative Officer

Nevins’ reputation for creating quality television was recognized in October, when he was tapped to become the top creative exec at CBS Corp. while retaining his title as CEO of Showtime Networks. He will also oversee CBS’ interest in the CW, a joint venture between the network and Warner Bros. Entertainment. But his journey into TV lore dates back to his turns at NBC, Fox Broadcasting and Imagine Television. The first series developed on his watch at Showtime, “Homeland,” was the cabler’s first to win a best drama Emmy, and then came “Ray Donovan,” “Masters of Sex,” “Penny Dreadful,” “The Affair” and “Billions.” Nevins brought David Lynch back to TV for the 2017 reincarnation of “Twin Peaks,” and this year saw “Kidding,” Jim Carrey’s first series-regular role in decades.
