BANFF Panel: Showrunners

Some of TV’s top showrunners got together for a panel titled “Showrunner Superpanel: Where Do We Go From Here?” at the recent virtual edition of the BANFF World Media Festival. Five women – Tanya Saracho (Vida), Anna Winger (Unorthodox), Liz Tigelaar (Little Fires Everywhere), Kerry Ehrin (The Morning Show), Liz Feldman (Dead To Me) – and one queer person of color, Steven Canals (Pose) – talked about the unique challenges for minorities in Hollywood, their hopes for the TV landscape post-pandemic and after the current cultural shifts, and even offered a little advice in case you want to run your own TV show.
