THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
Representing some of the funniest guys in film (Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd, among them) along with respected auteurs (Mike Mills) and in-demand writers (Evan Goldberg, John Gatins), Kohan, 44, has developed a reputation as a nurturer of talent and a behind-the-scenes motivator (case in point: backing the passions of Rogen and Goldberg as they launched their own company). Kohan keeps another showbiz lifer close by: husband David Kohan -- a TV writer-producer who co-created the classic sitcom Will & Grace and, more recently, CBS' Partners -- with whom she shares a daughter who's "almost 4."
Proudest moment this year: Getting Flight off the ground -- no pun intended. I represent the writer, John Gatins, and have been hanging in there with him since at least 2007. It was a great script, and to see that movie come to fruition in the way that it did was incredibly satisfying.
When my family is confused about what I do, I tell them: "It's not Entourage!" That's the framework for them; they think what Ari Gold does is what I do. Unless you are around agents on a day-to-day basis, you just don't know. But my brother and sister and my parents and my in-laws --they get it now.
Embarrassed to admit I watch: Gallery Girls. What's up with those girls? I just can't believe they exist. It's a total train wreck.
Most surprising songs on my iPod: "Gangnam Style" by Psy and "Novacane" by Frank Ocean.
