NBC Entertainment's late-night programming,
while Olmstead aims to replicate her success at
UCP by making Wilshire another go-to studio for
both established and up-and-coming storytellers.
The duo is developing projects-including docuseries

McGoldrick's keen instincts continue to guide him
as he mines new territory to develop into scripted
content. He also added oversight of casting for all

enjoying new successes. " Krypton, " which tells the
story of Superman's father on his doomed native
planet, debuted to 2.5 million viewers in March.
Cablefax: The Magazine
An area where media/ broadband could
use improvement? There needs to be a consistent,
universally accepted metric to measure
cross platform consumption of content.
Favorite short form content? SNL Digital Shorts
What product or service could you not live
without? My Blackberry. I'm never giving it up!
What does the future look like for skinny
bundles and flexible packaging? I'm hopeful
that these different options will give the consumer
more choice and a powerful incentive to
stay (or join) the TV package ecosystem.
Last show I binged not on my network(s):
" Insecure " on HBO
Dawn Olmstead
The biggest innovation in media/broadband
over the last year? Voice recognition systems.
If you wrote a " Black Mirror " episode, what
dark side of technology would you explore?
Fortnite secretly mobilizing the children of the world.
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave

Favorite shortform content?
" United States of Art "
Last show I binged not on my network(s):
" Wild Wild Country " on Netflix.
Favorite podcast:

never followed).
Worst advice your mom or dad ever gave
you? Don't move to California.
Your social media platform of choice? I
waste an equal amount of time on all of them.
Favorite short-form content? Chicago White Sox

25. AT YOUR SERVICE
Rita Tuzon
EVP & General
Counsel
Fox Networks
Group
Years in Cable:
21
Education: BA,
Human Biology,
Stanford University;
JD, UC
Berkeley's Boalt
School of Law
The past several months have seen Tuzon
deeply involved in 21st Century Fox's agreement
to sell key film and TV assets to Disney.
Her role has included overseeing the operational
business and legal aspects of the deal
for the larger merger team. While mega deals
have a way of being all consuming, Tuzon also
made sure to look at the development of the
sexual harassment story in Hollywood. She
was integrally involved in guiding the examination
of FNG and developing the response
and guidelines for the conversation. The big
picture is dear to Tuzon, who helped the company's
L.A. office launch a workplace program
with Big Brothers Big Sisters in the fall.
Favorite restaurant: Just tried Wally's on Canon
for lunch. OMG.
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave
you? " This is America. If you work hard you can
be anything you want, even the President of the
United States. "
Worst advice your mom or dad ever gave
you? " Don't take typing in high school. Only
secretaries type. You are going to college. "
If I ever get elected President, my first executive
order will be... restoring DACA.
Bitcoin - pro or con? Bitcoin was a groundbreaker
but other cryptocurrencies will carry the
day (think: Friendster).
What's the first thing you read in the morning?
Email around the globe: Asia, Europe,
LatAM, NY, then overnight breaking news.
What does the future look like for skinny
bundles and flexible packaging? Bullish ■
