About This Show
Mass media has a long history of leaving many voices underrepresented–both in its depiction of race and gender roles and in the degree to which white males dominate the very creation of entertainment. Television writer Kirk Moore (American Crime) and internet producer Deron Sedy (brevityTV) discuss with industry guests how Hollywood fails women and minorities, and what steps can be taken towards positive change.
