Next Gen 2013: Hollywood's New Class
Davis is coming up on his decade mark at AMC, where he has played a critical role in the cable network's ascension as a scripted programming force.
The New Jersey-born Tulane grad was particularly hands-on in the early seasons of Emmy magnet Mad Men, just as he has been for the entire run of critical heavyweight Breaking Bad and ratings smash The Walking Dead.
Next, the executive who worked briefly for uber-producer Scott Rudin will turn his attention to AMC's upcoming dramas, Turn and Halt & Catch Fire.
20 YEARS FROM NOW: Hopefully I'll be the president of entertainment at a network.
FAVORITE MOVIE: Star Wars: A New Hope made me want to work in this business, and The Deer Hunter made me want to work in drama.
MUST-SEE TV: Game of Thrones
POWER DRINKS SPOT: Sunset Tower for an old-fashioned to make Don Draper proud.
MOST MEANINGFUL THING IN MY OFFICE: An ax that [director] Michelle MacLaren gave me from Breaking Bad, and I have a zombie bust that Greg Nicotero made up for us at the start of The Walking Dead. They scare the crap out of anyone walking into my office.
