Discovery Plus Chief Lisa Holme: Walking the Line Between Bold Disruption and Saving What’s Left of Pay TV

Lisa Holme, SVP of content and commercial strategy, is leading the rollout of Discovery's new streaming platform, discovery+. She recently gave an interview discussing the future of the platform and the content that lives on it:

"The core offering of Discovery Plus truly is around nonfiction/non-scripted programming. That's where we are the market leaders. That's where we truly distinguish ourselves as far as being the best, the highest quality, the most volume, the most variety in that unscripted space, so that is the focus."

New subscription streaming service is just an ‘incremental’ addition to existing linear channels, she insists, not a replacement for them

Pretty much sums it up. 👀 (h/t Investigation Discovery)
