Mattocks is charged with supervising creative development for the hugely successful Disney Channel Original Movie division. The franchise has produced TV’s #1 movie telecast among tweens 9-14 for the past 14 consecutive years. Two recent Disney Channel films—“Descendants” and “Teen Beach 2”—rank as the #1 and #2 movies on television in their respective demos. “There were so many talented people who all worked incredibly hard to make that happen, and I’m thrilled about it,” she says. A graduate of Emerson College, she serves on the Foundation Board of Women in Film.

What’s your biggest professional accomplishment in the past 12 months?

The two most recent movies to premiere on Disney Channel, “Descendants” and “Teen Beach 2,” rank as the year’s #1 and #2 movies on cable television. There were so many talented people who all worked incredibly hard to make that happen and I’m thrilled about it.

How do you define diversity?

In terms of what I do specifically, diversity means that the people working in front of and behind the camera (directors, producers, writers, crew, executives, etc.) are a clear and strong reflection of the world we live in.
