Carolyn Blackwood (JD '95) of New Line Cinema interviewed for Warner Bros. publication
February 20, 2016 -- Pepperdine Law alumna Carolyn Blackwood (JD '95), President of Operations and Content Strategy at New Line Cinema, was recently interviewed by an online Warner Bros. publication. She goes into depth about her role in movies ranging from small independent films to blockbusters like San Andreas.
Excerpt from the article:
A graduate of Fordham University before moving out west where she received her law degree at Pepperdine University, Carolyn Blackwood ironically had no intention of entering the entertainment business, instead focusing initially on a possible career in the DA's office. "I didn't have any aspirations to be involved in the entertainment business," Blackwood says now, "which was really different from most of my colleagues in law school who either had connections or a desire to be involved with it."
