As Vice President of Creative Development at Warner Bros. Discovery, Peter Dodd is part of the team that green lights the blockbusters we know and love — including King Richard. But before he helped call the shots in WB’s studio boardroom, he grit his teeth as a Motion Picture Literary Agent for six years at United Talent Agency. There he negotiated over 100 big picture deals with studios including New Line, Netflix, A24 and Universal. In his new role at WBD, he works with writers and producers on the development of original scripts and literary adaptations. Bonus: Dodd’s no stranger to the stage. While studying at Harvard University, he was a member of their renowned Hasty Pudding Theatricals Group. —K.M.
