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. So far, the U.S. banner has produced such hit dramas as “Narcos” on Netflix and NBC’s “Hannibal.” In France, Gaumont has delivered box-office hits, particularly “The Intouchables,” which grossed more than $426 million worldwide and was nominated for a Golden Globe. Recent successes include Guillaume Galliene’s semi-autobiographical “Me, Myself and Mum,” which won five Césars, and Franck Dubosc’s “Rolling to You,” one of France’s highest-grossing films in 2018. The company also has English-language projects, including the U.S. remake of Korean zombie thriller “Train to Busan.”
