Susanne Daniels knows a few things about making TV for teenagers. She spent 10 years at The WB, overseeing shows including ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ ‘Gilmore Girls’ and ‘Dawson’s Creek.’ She also spent time at Lifetime and MTV, before making the move to YouTube, where she’s in charge of original shows and movies. Daniels talks to Indiewire’s Michael Schneider about the challenge of growing YouTube Red--the streamer’s subscription service--into something that can compete with Hulu and Amazon. She also addresses YouTube stars behaving badly, and she talks about upcoming projects, including ‘Cobra Kai’ and a serious Susan Sarandon film that will be released in theaters.
