Gale Anne Hurd, Film and Television Producer

Acclaimed film and television producer Gale Anne Hurd tells the story of leaving a role in marketing to take an entry-level position on a film set. It was hard to watch peers in other industries succeeding during this period, says Hurd, but she values the decision she made to accept the challenge of starting over, making herself indispensible on set and earning the respect of her colleagues.
