Paul
Buccieri

President / Chairman

Buccieri has earned kudos for taking A+E Networks’ core cable brands — A&E, History and Lifetime — to profitability and improving ratings since taking the helm in 2018. He has doubled down on his strategy of investing in telefilms produced in partnership with high-profile onscreen talent (Angie Harmon, Robin Roberts, Reba McEntire) for Lifetime and multipart docuseries and events for A&E and History (Garth Brooks, Janet Jackson). Lifetime landed an Emmy nomination for best movie for biopic “Robin Roberts Presents: Mahalia,” making it the rare basic cabler to contend in a top category in the 2021 Emmy race. Buccieri has invested in A+E Networks’ live linear business in part because its parent companies, Walt Disney Co. and Hearst, have a fairly muted streaming strategy for the cable stalwarts.
