In her first year at YouTube, the former MTV exec added more than 20 YouTube Red Original exclusives. She also struck a deal with Lionsgate TV to bring the “Step Up” movie franchise to YouTube Red as a series. “The current demand for more original content has allowed more female creative voices to rise. There are more female showrunners today than at any point in my career in the business,” she says, singling out Jenji Kohan, Shonda Rhimes, Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham, plus newer voices like YouTube creators Lilly Singh and Mamrie Hart. “I’m so pleased to see the explosive growth of actresses in comedy breaking out today. More than ever, television has dozens of fantastic comedic roles written for women, more often by women.”
