Dumas

CEO

Dumas succeeded her father at the helm of the world’s oldest film studio in 2004 and has expanded its footprint in the U.S. with the launch of a Los Angeles-based TV outfit. The U.S. banner has produced such hit dramas as “Narcos” and “Hannibal.” She’s been growing the company across Europe with new operations in the U.K. and Germany. Gaumont was behind the worldwide French hit “The Intouchables.” Among the notables are the French/Canadian animated feature “Leap” (originally “Ballerina”) and Franck Dubosc’s buzzy debut feature “Rolling to You,” one of France’s highest-grossing films of 2018. The company has English-language projects as well, including the U.S. remake of Korean zombie thriller “Train to Busan” and “Do, Re & Mi,” a recently greenlit Amazon Original for pre-schoolers co-created by Kristen Bell.
