About this course:
The Year of the Woman continues—in our culture, in Congress, and in storytelling. Women-centered storytelling is claiming its place on our televisions screens and streaming services. In this course, you look at the history of women-centered storytelling on TV, from Murphy Brown, to How to Get Away With Murder, to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and from our good old, likeable heroines, to female anti-heroes, to the rich and more complex portrayals of women appearing on TV today. You discuss the importance of telling stories from a woman’s point of view, as well as its economic impact. You create and write pitches for your own stories. By the end of the course you find your strongest, most authentic voice and make it heard!
