Pakistani-American among Hollywood's Top 20 Dealmakers of 2019

Tehmina Jaffer is among ‘Hollywood's Top 20 Dealmakers of 2019,’ an annual list compiled by The Hollywood Reporter, which spotlights “the men and women behind some of the most headline-grabbing transactions the year.”

THR says the Pakistani-American joined Disney+ as senior vice president Business Affairs in March from Netflix “to handle deals on all Disney+ originals, including those from in-house studios as well as third-party projects like CBS Studios' ‘Diary of a Female President.’”

According to a March 2019 Deadline report, Jaffer, who was director of original series at Netflix, oversees the coordination and negotiation of development, production and talent deals and contracts as well as rights, acquisitions, clearances and content agreements for Disney’s streaming service, which recently launched in the U.S.
