Veteran cable programmer Rob Sorcher has joined American Movie Classics as
senior vice president of programming and production, officials said Tuesday.
Sorcher, who will report to AMC general manager Noreen O'Loughlin, will be
responsible for all aspects of AMC original programming and production, as well
as overseeing development, packaging and scheduling.
Sorcher has held top posts at a variety of cable networks, serving as GM of
USA Network, head of programming for Fox Family Channel and GM for Cartoon
At AMC, Sorcher will essentially be filling a vacancy left for two years,
when the network's former head of programming, Marc Juris, was named GM of AMC.
Juris never filled his old programming slot when he was promoted.
In January, Juris left AMC to become president of MuchMusic USA, another
Rainbow Media Holdings Inc. service.
