Chris Albrecht has become "a humbler, more pragmatic and more buttoned-down leader" at Starz, which doesn't have the "lavish" resources available at HBO, where he previously worked, Cynthia Littleton writes. Albrecht's original series strategy begins this week with the debut of "Black Sails," one of five new series planned for 2014. "We are not looking to defeat everyone else. We're looking to grow our financial results and return cash and value to shareholders. That's how we define success here," Albrecht said.
