Dana
Walden

Co-Chairman / CEO

With the Walt Disney Co. set to acquire 21st Century Fox, Walden has been chosen to oversee
television-studio operations for the soon-to-be-bigger company, as well as broadcast network ABC and cable channel Freeform. Alongside her longtime professional partner, Gary Newman, Walden made 20th Century Fox Television a haven for the creative minds behind the likes of such varied series as “American Horror Story,” “Modern Family,” “Sons of Anarchy” and “Homeland.” When TCFTV and Fox Broadcasting united as Fox Television Group in 2014, the two added oversight of the network to their purview. Among the hits Walden shepherded in recent years are Lee Daniels’ “Empire,” Ryan Murphy’s “Feud” and “American Horror Story” and the NBC drama “This Is Us.”
