Calling Manfredi a billion-dollar woman would be understating her importance. She continues to make landmark deals that have secured NBCUniversal more than $1 billion worth of revenue, and is responsible for the sale of the company’s leading multibillion-dollar portfolio of content from Universal Cable Productions and Universal TV. Examples of Manfredi’s efforts include deals she made for “Falling Water,” available on Amazon; “The Good Place” on Netflix; “The Mindy Project” on Freeform and VH1; plus “30 Rock,” early seasons of “Will and Grace” and Telemundo programming on Hulu. Asked which famous woman she’d like to dine with, Manfredi suggests a roundtable dinner with Tina Fey, Lena Dunham, Jenji Kohan and Jill Soloway “to hear about their unique voices, their creative and career journeys, and their courage.”
