Co-President

Gardner has said there is no division of labor at Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment between herself and Jeremy Kleiner, with whom presides as co-president. They both do it all as producers of acclaimed projects like Korean-American drama “Minari,” which won a best supporting actress Oscar for Youn Yuh-jung, and Amazon limited series “The Underground Railroad” from frequent collaborator Barry Jenkins. But while they both won Oscars for “12 Years a Slave” and Jenkins’ “Moonlight,” Gardner has the distinction of being the only woman to win two best picture Oscars. Upcoming features include a Latine spin on “Father of the Bride” for Warner Bros., adaptations of novels “Women Talking” (MGM’s Orion Pictures) and “She Said” (Universal), plus two new series for Amazon: “Paper Girls” and “Outer Range.”
