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.

Come prepared to laugh and learn about what it takes to create a hit TV show.
