The heads of ‘Black-ish,’ ‘Fresh Off the Boat,’ ‘Grace and Frankie’ and ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ join the discussion about sex, spinoffs and storytelling.
Six comedy series chiefs — Kenya Barris (Black-ish), Nahnatchka Khan (Fresh Off the Boat), Marta Kauffman (Grace and Frankie), Aline Brosh McKenna (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), David Mandel (Veep) and Alan Yang (Master of None) — let it rip on the sex acts they still can’t believe they got past Standards (yes, “chicken cooping” is a real thing), why they don’t like spinoffs (sorry, Friends fans!) and the challenges that come with trying to tell your story when you don’t look like everyone else in Hollywood: “Black people don’t get to write for white people.”
The filmed roundtable panels will feature Emmy nominees and other top stars of the year’s most buzzed-about television series, including comedy and drama actors, actresses and showrunners, and reality hosts and producers. Guests will discuss everything from their individual projects to their craft and true stories from the business. The panels will present thoughtful, informative takes on the film and television industry today.
