She oversaw all aspects of its legal strategy, including its pending case against Netflix alleging intentional interference with contractual relations. She also led negotiations for digital distribution of Fox Network Group’s content on platforms including Sling, PlayStation Vue, Fubo TV and DirecTV Now. Tuzon hopes the headlines of 2017 will jumpstart real progress for women in the entertainment industry to be treated as equals to and by their male equivalents. “Sexual harassment scandals will pave the way to an energized push for gender parity in wages and opportunity in Hollywood… a girl can dream!” she says.
