Peter
Levinsohn

Vice Chairman / Chief Distribution Officer, Filmed Entertainment Group

Levinsohn reshaped Universal’s feature release strategy, leading negotiations to create an 18-month Pay 1 window divided into three blocks. For the first and last blocks (four months each), titles will stream on Peacock, and Amazon and Netflix get streaming rights in the middle block for live-action and animated films, respectively. The deal will also bring Universal, Focus, Illumination and DreamWorks Animation titles exclusively to Peacock within four months of their theatrical debuts. Levinsohn spent 25 years at 20th Century Fox divisions Fox Interactive and Fox Filmed Entertainment. He joined Universal Filmed Entertainment Group as president and chief of distribution in 2013 and was elevated to his present position in February 2020.
