There will be 150 people at the invite-only lunch.

Dubuc will introduce the panel discussion about the current ‘Golden Age’ of television with ABC Studios and Disney Channel chief Sweeney; Emily Mortimer, currently starring in HBO series The Newsroom and in Cannes to promote her new Sky Vision-distributed series Doll and Em; and Al Kaabi, who runs the Abu Dhabi-based media hub twofour54.

The A+E boss will make the introductions and then join the group discussion.

“The entertainment industry has a wealth of talented and powerful women executives, and last year’s highly successful first Women in Global Entertainment Power Lunch at MIPCOM provided a forum for these women to exchange with their international peers,” said Laurine Garaude, director of Reed MIDEM’s television division.
