While male characters have long been afforded opportunities to push the boundaries of TV storytelling, it feels like women are finally getting the opportunity to do the same. Tune in to hear the creators, directors, producers, and actors responsible for shaping some of our favorite “dangerous” women explore the complicated villains, unconventional heroes, rule-breakers (and everything in between) who dare to challenge the status quo and redefine who/what a leading woman can be.
This conversation was originally recorded at ATX TV Festival Season 11 (June 2-5, 2022) in Austin, TX.
