Mattocks oversaw upcoming sequel “Descendants 2,” and collaborates with writers and directors as she oversees the creative storytelling throughout production—a role that places her in a position to see the strides that have been made in diversity. “It feels like a revolution is going on in front of and behind-the-camera, which is great,” she says. “But we’ve still got a lot more work to do.”

What grade do you give the cable industry on diversity and why?
I would give it a C, but that’s not a bad grade considering where we’ve been. It feels like a revolution is going on in front of and behind-the-camera, which is great but we’ve still got a lot more work to do.

What television show/s – cable or broadcast – best embrace diversity?
I’m proud of what we’re doing with our Disney Channel Original Movies and am also a huge fan of ABC’s Wednesday night lineup.

Favorite charity organization you work with?
A Place Called Home, which is an amazing organization that gives young men and women the tools to do great things in their future.
