    Hannah Einbinder, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez and Anne Kennedy McGuire on Going from Mentee to Mentor on Screen

    Hannah Einbinder, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez and Anne Kennedy McGuire on Going from Mentee to Mentor on Screen

    Mentorship doesn’t always have to happen between an older guide and young learner. Take Hannah Einbinder’s Ava, helping Jean Smart’s Deborah Vance get her comedy career back on track in “Hacks.” Or maybe Michaela Jaé Rodriguez helping Maya Rudolph reinvent herself as a billionaire philanthropist in “Loot.” It’s not always the older, richer or more successful person who is giving the advice. Sometimes, those people need to be willing to listen.

    On this episode of “UnWrapped,” Einbinder and Rodriguez discuss the complex relationships their characters have with their on-screen bosses, and how they manage to act like they hate people that, in real life, they deeply admire. 

    Plus, Anne Kennedy McGuire, chair of Loeb & Loeb’s podcast division, talks about how her own mentor helped her get into the entertainment space. She also shares her best podcasting advice with WrapWomen – from negotiating podcast deals to what audiences are looking for.

    Kristin Chenoweth, Rosie Perez and Jasmine Cephas Jones Talk Family Dynamics On and Off Screen

    Kristin Chenoweth, Rosie Perez and Jasmine Cephas Jones Talk Family Dynamics On and Off Screen

    Every family has their problems – even ones that are meticulously crafted in a writers room. And during this episode of WrapWomen’s “UnWrapped” Podcast, actresses Kristin Chenoweth (“Schmigadoon”), Rosie Perez (“The Flight Attendant”) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (“Blindspotting”) discuss how their recent roles shine a light on the everyday challenges of motherhood and marriage through humor, heartfelt dialogue and even a few musical numbers.

    Whether it’s Chenoweth playing the uptight, hostile leader of “Mothers Against the Future” in “Schmigadoon!,” Perez trying to reunite with her on-screen son in “The Flight Attendant” or Cephas Jones exposing the effects of incarceration on families, all three characters are fierce mothers – and don’t particularly care if you agree with their parenting styles. During this episode, the women also opened up about their real-life family dynamics growing up and how that impacts the work they’re doing today.

    Toni Collette, Molly Shannon and Vanessa Bayer on the Challenges of Playing Characters Based on Real People

    Toni Collette, Molly Shannon and Vanessa Bayer on the Challenges of Playing Characters Based on Real People

    On this episode of WrapWomen’s “UnWrapped” podcast actresses Toni Collette (“The Staircase”), Molly Shannon (“I Love That for You”) and Vanessa Bayer (“I Love That for You”) discuss how they’ve prepared for their latest roles based on real people – from studying home video tapes to touring QVC headquarters.  

    First up, we hear from Oscar and Emmy Award-winning actress Toni Collette, who  currently stars in HBO Max’s “The Staircase.” The eight-episode series, which premiered May 5, tells the story of North Carolina-based crime novelist Michael Peterson (Colin Firth), who was convicted of murdering his wife Kathleen, played by Collette. 

    “UnWrapped” hosts Emily Vogel and Andi Ortiz also speak with “I Love That for You” co-stars Molly Shannon and Vanessa Bayer, who also co-created and co-wrote the show. The Showtime series follows Joanna Gold (Bayer), a survivor of childhood cancer who lands her dream job working at a home shopping channel alongside her hero, longtime host Jackie (Molly Shannon). Though the women aren’t portraying any specific QVC hosts, the series is loosely based on Bayer’s own  experience with childhood cancer and her actual obsession with home shopping TV (and the hosts that sold to her).
