Cindy Holland

Holland knows a hit when she sees one, but she also nurtures visionary storytellers and allows them creative freedom to do what they do best. Need proof? Look at one of Netflix’s latest hits—the complex, time-trippy series “Russian Doll.” Holland and her team have invested heavily in development deals with top talent such as Shonda Rhimes, Ryan Murphy, and former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama. Despite an onslaught of new streaming services, Holland has been vocal about there being plenty of room for other SVOD providers, noting Netflix’s experience and international scope give it an edge over other streaming services.
