More Women Who Run TV

Get ready for our “Women Who Run TV” sections!

Posted on

Hey, you know that show you love? A woman’s probably behind it. Lena Dunham, who created HBO’s Girls, jokes that the attitude towards women on TV used to be ”Check it out! Ladies be talkin’!” BUt more and more, those ladies are the ones writing, directing, producing, and starring on fantastic TV shows, as well as designing the costumes and choosing the soundtracks. So Dunham is in good company, joined by the women of Scandal, Homeland, Parks and Recreation, and a lot of other great comedies and drams that you and your friends (and probably your dad) are watching. Let’s take a moment to celebrate them, shall we?
