Jimmy
Horowitz

Vice Chairman, Business Affairs & Operations

Horowitz’s job at Universal Filmed Entertainment Group has him negotiating content deals for its film and TV studios, TV networks and, perhaps most important nowadays, its streaming service Peacock. He outbid studios to secure the rights to the “Exorcist” IP for a trilogy budgeted at $400 million that will premiere its first installment theatrically in 2023, with the latter two potentially going straight to Peacock. He lured Christo­pher Nolan away from longtime home Warner Bros. for his next feature, about the Manhat­tan Project, and crafted a multiyear partnership with NBA star Steph Curry’s Unanimous Media that includes first-look development deals with DreamWorks Animation and Universal Studio Group for scripted and unscripted TV.
