Jacobson

Producer

Jacobson is one of the few women to head a Hollywood movie studio — and the only one to be fired over the phone in the delivery room while waiting for her partner to deliver their third child. But since her exile from the Mouse House in 2006, she’s been in success-is-the-best-revenge mode with movie franchises (“The Hunger Games,” “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”), the breakout hit “Crazy Rich Asians” (2018) — including two sequels in the works — and the FX series “American Crime Story,” “Pose” and, soon, “Y” (2020). Her prodco Color Force is behind recent big-screen adaptations of novels by Maria Semple (“Where’d You Go, Bernadette”) and Donna Tartt (“The Goldfinch”) and the upcoming Netflix feature drama “All Day and a Night.”
