Vice Chairman, Business Affairs & Operations

Horowitz is responsible for negotiating NBCUniversal’s content deals for its film and TV studios, TV networks and signature streaming service, Peacock. For Universal Pictures, he closed an overall deal with director Michael Bay (“Transformers”) and Brad Fuller’s (“A Quiet Place”) production company Platinum Dunes and signed superhot directing duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert — aka Daniels — to an exclusive five-year pact fresh off the success of their sleeper sci-fi comedy hit “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Under Horowitz’s leadership, NBCU closed a deal with Rachel Maddow for the 8-part podcast series “Rachel Maddow Presents: Ultra,” which debuted at No.1 on Apple Podcasts in October and stayed there for four straight weeks. Amblin has since optioned the film rights to the series.
