Running the Show: TV's New Queen of Comedy

#sxsw #QueenofComedy

A one-on-one panel discussion with Mindy Kaling, creator and star of Fox's The Mindy Project, about the new guard of female showrunners conquering television and what that means for its future. What do changes in the competitive landscape, including the emergence of digital players like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, mean for the genre? How are audiences changing TV? Are women better positioned to leverage these changes?
Mindy will later be joined by Mindy Project castmates, including Ike Barinholtz and Adam Pally, to discuss the evolution of the show under Mindy's leadership.
