According to recent stats from San Diego State’s Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, in 2012-13, women accounted for 28% of creators, EPs, producers, directors, writers and editors working on prime-time TV programs. Men have always outnumbered women in TV, especially comedy, but that gender gap is quickly narrowing. More women are stepping up to run the show: writing, producing, directing and even starring in front of the camera in this year’s funniest programs.

Join some of the most hilarious female showrunners in television who are creating, directing, writing and developing the very best original programming on Hulu. Cody Heller (Co-Creator, Executive Producer, Writer “Deadbeat”), Danielle Schneider and Dannah Feinglass Phirman (Co-Creators, Writers, Stars, “The Hotwives of Orlando") will discuss the challenges & opportunities for females creating comedic television. Come prepared to laugh and learn about what it takes to create a hit TV show.
