Apparently leading the largest global rebrand of a television channel in pay TV history wasn’t enough for Dolan. She also helped coordinate the international simultaneous day-and-date launch of the series “Wayward Pines” in 125 different countries, setting yet another record. This busy author and podcaster sees plenty of opportunity for women on the international side of the business. “Our business continues to grow very quickly plus there is room for a lot of experimentation that might be harder to pull off in the United States,” she says. “The environment definitely encourages new thinking.”

 

Where are the biggest growth areas for women in cable?

I work in the international channels business and I see loads of opportunity for women here.  Our business continues to grow very quickly plus there is room for a lot of experimentation that might be harder to pull off in the United States.  The environment definitely encourages new thinking.

 

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

It’s important for me to have creative projects I am working on outside of my actual job.  Whether it’s my podcast, my new book or something else, it gets my head out of my job and lets me express myself on a more personal level on things I care about.

 

Your favorite trick for unwinding?

At work I try to remind myself every day to get up from my desk and take a walk around the 20th Century Fox studio lot where I work.  It’s a good reminder that we are in a fun business and you never know who or what you will see.
