"What is This 1950? Women Are Missing as TV Creators"

Women and Hollywood

"While there are a fair amount of pilots about women, the story here is the lack of women who are writing and creating the shows. The only way I know about this is from a very disturbing email from a reader who sent me info that came from a high level female TV executive. This is an industry wide problem and 2010 is way worse for women creators than it was in 2009."

From the comments:

"You know what I just noticed. Many of the female written pilots are actually by a team. A man and a woman. I was told by someone if I wanted to work, I needed to get a male partner. They told me he didn’t even have to be good, he could literally be my “intern”. This really is 1950."
