On the other side of the table sits Suzanne Prete, Executive Vice President of Game Shows at Sony Pictures Television. She emphasized the shared commitment of both parties to ‘applying the Wheel of Fortune brand in ingenious ways’,  and there is no doubt they will continue doing so in the years to come.
