Host Anna Van Valin explores what makes The Devil Wears Prada’s Miranda Priestly such a fascinating villain, and why we are drawn to villains in the first place. Exclusive interviews with director David Frankel and screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna illuminate how Miranda’s character was created for the screen, and what makes her so iconic. Additional insights from NYU’s Corey Sullivan on villainous archetypes and Tech Women Today’s Cecilia Harvey on the dynamics of women in the workplace help us better understand the various ways we might interpret Miranda, and even lead us to asking: is she even a villain at all?
