Ryan Seacrest Is No. 1 on THR's Reality Power List
Buccieri is that rare TV exec who openly welcomes success among the competition. “I actually just e-mailed Cecile [Frot-Coutaz] to tell her how I’m enjoying what she’s done with Idol,” he says. “Success in the arena brings better shows to the genre.” And much of the L.A. executive’s own rebranding strategy for ITV Studios (formerly Granada America) could qualify as such, including Fox’s triple-threat foodie fest Hell’s Kitchen (the No. 1-rated show for the past four summers) and Kitchen Nightmares; Four Weddings for TLC; and a personal favorite of Buccieri, Steven Seagal: Lawman on A&E, which is filming its second season. “He amazes me, the juxtaposition of him in that role,” the married father of two says. “He epitomizes our programming staple of the unsung hero.”
