Hollywood Hits the Red Carpet


Hollywood's fight for the future was the unofficial theme of THR's sixth annual Power Lawyers breakfast July 18 at The Peninsula Beverly Hills. In a keynote Q&A with the magazine's news director, Matthew Belloni, Netflix content guru Ted Sarandos lamented cable companies that try to "block us" from airing television series. And as A-list attorneys Bert Fields, Bruce Ramer, Ken Ziffren, Shawn Holley, Jeanne Newman and many others featured on THR's list of the town's top 100 nibbled on omelettes, Michael Fricklas, who was presented with the annual Raising the Bar award by Paramount CEO Brad Grey, used his speech to assail those who "celebrate lawlessness" by defending piracy. -- Alex Ben Block
