The former HBO chairman and CEO tells THR he’s moving Starz’s entire original programming slate from Saturday to Sunday nights, where fare like Outlander will go head-to-head with fellow premium cablers HBO and Showtime, among others.
The migration begins July 17 with the season three premiere of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s Power, Starz’s highest-rated original series, and the third run of Survivor’s Remorse bowing a week later. “We see opportunity,” says Albrecht. “Saturdays have worked so well that we feel our shows are going to be able to stand up on the most watched night of the week.”
