Mizuno is focused on maintaining the show’s success while making small changes, such as offering vacation packages instead of cars as prizes. She has also enhanced the backstage area for “Celebrity Family Feud” contestants to create a more relaxed environment.

Her journey to this role includes producing unscripted content for various networks and shows, including “Judge Judy” and “Supermarket Sweep.” Mizuno’s work on “Judge Steve Harvey” caught Harvey’s attention, leading to her current position.
