    Jen Statsky and Brad Ingelsby

    Brad Ingelsby, showrunner and creator of HBO’s Mare of Easttown and Jen Statsky, co-showrunner and co-creator of HBO Max’s Hacks come together to chat about breaking into the entertainment industry and all the surprises that come with it. With warm laughter and deep empathy, they recount first jobs, their personal journeys as writers, the stories that compel them and the characters that stick with them. And there’s also some mutual gushing over the legend Jean Smart who starred in both of their shows, and the other talented actors that help them realize their artistic visions.

    Misha Green and Kamilah Forbes

    Misha Green, creator and showrunner of HBO’s ‘Lovecraft Country,’ interviews Kamilah Forbes, the director and executive producer of HBO’s film adaption of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ ‘Between The World And Me.’ Misha and Kamilah dig into what it’s like to be both “a player and a coach” in Hollywood and finding home on set, in music, in Black institutions and beyond. They also take us inside the process of creating Lovecraft Country and Between the World and Me: from working with the actors to the ways that filming during a pandemic changed everything.
