Starz to push original content after early success

|About: Starz (STRZA)|By:, SA News Editor

Starz (STRZA) CEO Chris Albrecht says a large ramp up of original content will put the network in a good position when its contract with Disney expires in 2016.

The exec calls original shows a "core part" of its new business model.

Last year, Starz was a breakout star with new shows Da Vinci's Demons, The White Queen, and Black Sails all drawing positive reviews and solid ratings.
