THR's Women in Entertainment 2011: Power 100
Newman, one of the town's top talent lawyers, found herself at the center of two major media maelstroms this year, representing Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner in his protracted renegotiation to continue with the show, and handling Real Housewives producer Evolution Entertainment during the fallout from the Russell Armstrong suicide. She also represented The Voice producer Talpa in its deal to bring the Dutch format to NBC, all while welcoming a high school girl into her office for THR's mentorship program. "It became a firm project, and all of us are better off for it," she says.
Newman says she's proud that after years of trying to recruit women attorneys to the firm, she is now surrounded by "four great female lawyers." The success in her day job helps make up for the cold weather that led to a challenging year at the central California winery she owns with husband Gary Newman of 20th Century Fox Television. "I am so happy that Gary and I don't need to feed our three children based on the profits from the winery," she jokes.
