For the next installment of The Hollywood Masters series, learn about the business side of the entertainment industry when Stephen Galloway sits down with Walt Disney Studios' Chairman Alan Horn. Horn began his entertainment career at 20th Century Fox and worked for Norman Lear's Tandem Pictures. He was a founding member of Castle Rock Entertainment, the company responsible for such classics as Seinfeld, A Few Good Men and The Shawshank Redemption. From there, he went on to serve as President and COO of Warner Bros. for a 12-year span yielding massive hits like the Harry Potter franchise and Christopher Nolan's Batman films. Shortly after leaving Warner Bros., Horn became the Chairman at Walt Disney Studios. Horn was instrumental in Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm, leading to a new slate of Star Wars films coming to theaters next year.
