Ramsey Naito and Shari Redstone Named In The Hollywood Reporter's 2021 Women in Entertainment Power 100 List

The Hollywood Reporter has named Ramsey Naito, President of Animation and Development, Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation and Shari Redstone, Chair, ViacomCBS; President, National Amusements in the publication's Annual(ish) Women in Entertainment Power 100 list!

"Ramping up output while still laboring through the pandemic, the women of the entertainment industry worked doubly hard in 2021, so it's only fair they be celebrated twice," notes THR.


With oversight of series and features, the exec is responsible for IP that ranges from Star Trek to SpongeBob. The Naito-overseen PAW Patrol recently debuted on Paramount+, where kids’ and family content is a cornerstone of growth (more than half of the service’s subscriber base watched some Nickelodeon streaming content during the last quarter, according to ViacomCBS) — meaning Naito’s slate (which also includes a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feature from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and the Rugrats reboot) is, well, paramount.


In a bid to grow Paramount+, Redstone’s all-in approach left some bodies in its wake: namely Jim Gianopulos, who was ousted from the film studio’s top job and replaced by Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins. Redstone and Co. most recently reached an agreement to unload CBS’ storied Studio City lot for $1.85 billion at November’s end.

Congrats Ramsey and Shari! :) You can read about everyone who made The Hollywood Reporter's  Annual(ish) Women in Entertainment Power 100 list on!
