Sherry is the former CEO of Paramount Pictures, and when president of production at 20th Century Fox was the first woman to head a Hollywood studio. Lansing has approached her post-Hollywood life with the same enthusiasm and creativity that characterized her earlier career. "I left Paramount at the ripe young age of sixty," notes Lansing. "A generation ago, that would have been retirement age. But my generation has more energy, more drive, and a greater life expectancy than any group of retirees before us. We are going to be here for two decades or more past 'retirement' age and we want to do something relevant in the so-called third act of our lives."
