LOS ANGELES, November 21, 2019 – The National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) announced today that the recipients of NATPE’s 17th Annual Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards are award-winning actress Christine Baranski, ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke, prolific television creator, producer and writer Courtney A. Kemp, President of NBCUniversal’s Telemundo Global Studios, Marcos Santana, and Chairman, WarnerMedia News and Sports & President, CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker.

The dinner, with its A-list attendees, benefits the NATPE Educational Foundation, with a portion going to the Broadcasters Federation of America (BFOA). Bob Holmes is returning as Executive Producer of the show.

Named in honor of Brandon Tartikoff, one of television’s greatest programmers, the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards were created to recognize an exceptional ensemble of professionals who exhibit extraordinary passion, leadership, independence and vision in content programming. Brandon had an unmatched love for television, life and family. He will always be remembered among the most gifted programmers of his generation.

Past honorees include Steven Bochco, James Burrows, Jon Feltheimer, Jane Fonda, Bob Greenblatt, David Kelly, Norman Lear, Chuck Lorre, Regis Philbin, Peter Roth, Josh Sapan, Ted Sarandos, Dick Wolf, and Betty White, among others. Proceeds from the program will be donated to the NATPE Educational Foundation and the Broadcasters Foundation of America.

The NATPE Educational Foundation was launched in 1978 by the late Lew Klein to promote educational activities and focuses on faculty development, recognizing that improving faculty knowledge translates into a better classroom experiences for students and thus has impacted thousands of students, some of whom now have illustrious careers in the industry.

Christine Baranski is an Emmy, two-time Tony, Screen Actors Guild, Drama Desk and American Comedy Award winner. Baranski currently stars as Diane Lockhart in the critically acclaimed CBS All Access original series “The Good Fight,” a role she originated on CBS’ “The Good Wife.” Other television credits include her Emmy-winning role on “Cybill,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Frasier.” Film credits include: “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”, “A Bad Moms Christmas,” “Mamma Mia!” “Trolls,” “Miss Sloane,” “Into the Woods,” “Chicago,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Bowfinger,” “Bulworth,” “Cruel Intentions” and “The Birdcage,” among others. She will next be seen in the Netflix feature “Christmas on the Square.” A graduate of the Juilliard School, Baranski received her big break in Tom Stoppard’s hit Broadway comedy “The Real Thing,” directed by Mike Nichols, for which she won a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award.

Karey Burke is responsible for all development, programming, casting, marketing, business affairs and scheduling operations for ABC prime time and late-night. She reports to Dana Walden, chairman, Disney Television Studios and ABC Entertainment. One year into her tenure, Burke has developed some the most buzzed-about live events of the year, including “Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons,’” which has reached more than 23 million total viewers on broadcast alone, and won the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (Live), the only major category win this year for a broadcast network; and “The Wonderful World of Disney presents: The Little Mermaid Live!” – the highest-rated live broadcast musical in four years. Additionally, The Oscars and CMA Awards have posted double digits gains vs. the prior year. For the first time ever, “The Bachelorette” was the No. 1 TV series of the summer, and the network’s “Summer Fun & Games” drove ABC to regain the title as the No. 1 network for summer for the first time in 24 years.  Burke is also delivering on her promise of female-forward programming, with new series “Stumptown,” “Emergence” and the No. 1 new comedy of the season, “mixed-ish”; all three shows rank in the top five new fall series (based on L7).

During her tenure, she had great success building on Freeform’s strong foundation, delivering the No. 1 new cable comedy and No. 1 new cable drama of 2018 for the network’s target audience of W18-34 with “grown-ish” and “Siren.” She also continued Freeform’s dominance as the No. 1 most social cable channel.

Courtney A. Kemp is a highly regarded creator, showrunner, and producer in the television industry. Kemp is the creative force behind Starz’s critically acclaimed gritty New York drama, Power which is currently in its sixth and final season. Under Kemp’s fearless leadership as series creator and showrunner, Power has consistently over-performed in viewership and continues to elevate itself above its competition in an oversaturated television landscape. Power, Starz’s most watched original series to date, currently boasts an average weekly multiplatform viewership of over 10 million, making it the second-most-watched series on premium cable. While the series will soon wrap up its sixth and final season, the Power cinematic universe that Kemp has built will continue for many years to come, with the first spinoff series, Power Book II: Ghost, written and created by Kemp and starring superstar Mary J. Blige, set to debut next year.

Kemp is the mind behind Starz’ critically acclaimed gritty New York drama, “Power” which premiered its sixth and final season this summer. The series marks her debut as a creator and showrunner and follows the complex character James “Ghost” St. Patrick and his empire. Under Kemp’s fearless leadership, the show has reached phenomenal heights, and remains Starz’ most watched original series to date. It currently boasts an average weekly viewership of over 10 million, when considering multiplatform and delayed viewing, making it the second-most-watched series on premium cable only after HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

Season-to-season, Kemp continually elevates the show’s presence in the television landscape as well as its viewership numbers. The series doubled viewership from its series premiere episode to its Season 1 finale, also generating the largest concentration of African American viewership of any scripted premium series in almost a decade. By the time the second season wrapped, “Power” drew a record 6.3 million viewers each week, up 389% from the first season. The Season 3 premiere episode alone raked in 2.26 million live viewers, establishing it as Starz’s best original series season debut and the most watched episode of any Starz original series of all time. In 2017, the season three premiere success led to an exclusive, multi-year deal with Lionsgate and Starz under her End of Episode production banner, what many would consider the biggest talent power play since Lionsgate’s acquisition of the premium cabler. Additionally, Starz announced the renewal of “Power” for season six prior to wrapping production on season five and has since announced the first of several planned spin-offs set within the “Power” cinematic universe. The first of these series, “Power Book II: Ghost” will feature global superstar Mary J. Blige and is set to debut next year.

Just this past October, Kemp signed a new lucrative multiyear development and production deal with Lionsgate, where she will develop and produce a variety of new content across multiple platforms and networks through End of Episode. With a continued mission to create and produce bold, provocative and high-stakes character driven programming, Kemp will also champion other forward thinking storytellers and their stories. The first project to come out of this powerful new deal is “Dirty Thirty,” a one-hour drama surrounding the real-life rogue and corrupt NYPD cops operating out of the 30th Precinct in the early 1990s, a series Kemp is developing for HBO. Shortly after unveiling her project with the premium cabler, Kemp and her shingle also optioned the rights to The Ones We Choose, the Simon & Schuster novel from Julie Clark that explores the struggle between the family you choose and the genetics you don’t. The project will be produced in association with Lionsgate Television.

Named by the Hollywood Reporter as one of the top 50 “Power Showrunners” four years in a row, Kemp’s profile continues to rise. Additionally, she was listed in Variety’s “Producers Impact Report” for being a staple in the industry by making an impact on the respective television season. Marie Claire Magazine named her one of “The 50 Most Influential Women in America,” she was included as one of the female powerhouses on Elle Magazine’s “The Agenda” and named one of Ebony Magazine’s “Power 100” honorees.

Previously, Kemp was a writer and supervising producer on the celebrated television show “The Good Wife,” which went on to garner nominations for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series and a Writers Guild Award for Dramatic Series. She also worked on ABC’s “Eli Stone,” and Fox’s “Justice” and “The Bernie Mac Show,” among others. Prior to her work in television, Kemp wrote for many prestigious magazines, including GQ, Vibe, and Marie Claire.

“Our board is stronger than ever now that these important voices have been added to the content conversation that is central to our organization,” said Kaplan. “This upcoming year is set to be one of the most important in media and the worlds in which NATPE lives are intersecting like never before.”

The five global leaders joining NATPE’s board demonstrate a wide variety of direct and relevant experience within the current evolution of the content marketplace, and will bring a dynamic perspective to an already strong board that is shaping the focus of NATPE’s flagship event – NATPE Miami – scheduled for January 21-23, 2020 at the Fontainebleau Resort in Miami, Florida.

Blacker is responsible for the revenue strategy of Telemundo Enterprises’ domestic and international businesses.

Shah leads Verance, an inventor of next generation movie, music and television technologies that set the industry standard for content measurement, enhancement and protection. He recently led the company through a major expansion from film into television.

“Given the current market dynamics, the NATPE board is emboldened by the addition of five leaders in their respective fields. They have first-hand experience of the profound industry disruption taking place today, and have demonstrated excellence in adapting quickly to these changes” said Bommel. “Their wisdom and confidence will continue to shape NATPE as the leading global content association.”

NATPE, the one-stop shop for the global commerce of content, is slated to welcome attendees from every corner of the globe at its annual Miami event.

Armando Nuñez

Armando Nuñez
Chairman, Global Distribution Group and Chief Content Licensing Officer
ViacomCBS

Armando Nuñez is Chairman, Global Distribution Group, and Chief Content Licensing Officer for ViacomCBS. In this role, Nuñez is responsible for overseeing all content licensing, including worldwide multiplatform distribution and domestic syndication, for ViacomCBS-owned programming to third-party platforms.

As the top global distribution executive for ViacomCBS, Nuñez is responsible for monetizing a large and growing portfolio of original content that airs on the CBS Television Network, The CW, CBS All Access and SHOWTIME, as well as programming from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Television, Paramount Players, Paramount Animation, CBS Television Studios, CBS News and the Viacom brands. He also oversees the monetization of the industry’s largest library of film and television titles.

In addition, Nuñez directs CBS Television Distribution, which produces and distributes seven of the top 10 first-run shows in syndication.

Nuñez has held senior leadership positions in international to global media for more than 25 years. He assumed his current role following the close of the merger between CBS Corporation and Viacom in December 2019. Nuñez has been named to multiple “power” lists (including The Hollywood Reporter and Hispanic Business Magazine) as a major television influencer. Recently, he was honored with Variety’s International Achievement in TV Award and was inducted into the 2019 class of the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame. In 2018 he was named to Variety’s “Dealmakers” list. Most notably, he was one of the first recipients of the inaugural MIPTV Médaille d’Honneur, which recognized six international television executives, including his father, Armando Nuñez Sr., for their achievements in the industry. At the same time, Nuñez received the City of Cannes Gold Medal at Cannes City Hall in a ceremony hosted by then-Mayor Bernard Brochand.

Nuñez is on the executive committee, a member of the board and co-chair of the global committee of NATPE International, as well as a member of the board and executive committee of the International Council of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). In addition, he is currently on the board of trustees of Fordham University and was formerly on the board of visitors of the George L. Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University.

A native of New York, Nuñez graduated from Fordham University with a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing and management.

Marcos Santana

Marcos Santana is the President of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises’ Telemundo Global Studios. In this role, Santana leads the division’s domestic and international scripted production units including Telemundo Studios, Telemundo International Studios and Telemundo International, as well as all of the division’s co-production partnerships. Under his direction, each entity produces its own unique brand of content geared to reach distinctive audiences.

Previously, Santana was President of Telemundo International and President of Telemundo International Studios.  In that role, Santana was charged with overseeing all of Telemundo’s international distribution efforts, as well as the company’s distribution services to other producers around the world, international co-productions and partnerships. Santana has also been involved in the network’s development process for all program genres, including original concepts development, scripts procurement, casting decisions and international distribution viability assessment.

Santana is the founding president of Telemundo International Studios (TIS). Created in 2016, the production unit is focused on creating high-end short-form scripted formats to fulfill the growing needs of emerging platforms and international markets. With its high budget Spanish-language Premium Series, it is tapping an international growth opportunity at a time when Telemundo has placed itself in the lead among Spanish-language broadcast networks in primetime in the United States. TIS is focused on adapting to new consumption trends and featuring the work of some of the Hispanic entertainment industry’s most important onscreen and off-screen talent – including actors, producers and directors in the Hollywood market.

During Santana’s tenure as president of Telemundo Internacional from 2007 to 2017, the company handled the international distribution of Telemundo and Universo’s original content, and that of other top producers. Telemundo Internacional became the second largest worldwide distributor of Spanish-language programming in the world with programs airing in more than 120 countries and pay TV channels in almost 80 countries, within Latin America and Africa. Telemundo’s financial turnaround is in great part due to the company’s decision to produce original telenovelas, realities and series in the United States, a factor credited to Santana’s influence. In 2017, the international distribution operations for Telemundo and Universo were assumed by NBCUniversal International Distribution for all territories with the exception of Mexico, a region for which Telemundo Internacional maintains exclusive distribution rights.

Prior to NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises, Santana previously served as president and chief operating officer of Tepuy International, a programming distribution company which he founded in 1989 and was later acquired at the end of 2006 by Telemundo to form Telemundo Internacional. He was installed as its president in early 2007 and is a current member of the Boards of Telemundo and TVN Panama.

Santana has been a longstanding and active member of the board of several important television networks in Latin America, including Televen in Venezuela and others in Panama and Spain. Santana is also a current member of the Board of the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO).
