Carolyn Strauss (born July 13, 1963) is an American television executive and producer. She was the president of the Home Box Office network's entertainment division until 2008 and was responsible for commissioning series like The Sopranos, The Wire, Six Feet Under, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Sex and the City. Upon leaving the position she became a television developer and producer and was given a production deal with HBO. She has collaborated with the network on the series Treme, Game of Thrones and Luck. Being of Jewish descent, in August 2015 she signed - as one of 98 members of the Los Angeles' Jewish community - an open letter supporting the proposed nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers led by the United States "as being in the best interest of the United States and Israel."
