The studio also boasts a prolific roster of primetime cable series that includes Better Call Saul and Preacher for AMC, Outlander for Starz, and Outsiders and Underground for WGN America. SPT is also producing a number of series for multiplatform entertainment networks such as the award winning series The Crown and One Day at a Time for Netflix, Sneaky Pete for Amazon, and Shut Eye for Hulu.
Under his leadership, Erlicht has had two Emmy award winning shows, Rescue Me and Breaking Bad, which has been inducted into the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, allowing for researchers and visitors alike to explore how TV drama has influenced American life. The studio’s large library also includes additional Emmys (2 Best Dramas), Golden Globes, and several AFI and WGA Awards.
