Thousands of comedies, dramas & news shows have aired, yet the presence of strong women – both in front of and behind the camera - is often a story untold. Advanced TV Herstory believes it’s all worth telling and re-telling.

Sometimes shows offer great leadership lessons or are so timeless in their writing that people say the series has aged very well. We’ll revisit moments in TV where women broke records, exceeded expectations or put their careers on the line. Advanced TV Herstory connects the treasures & moments of the past and places it into context of American life, for women, today.

Tomorrow’s success is rooted in understanding what has come before us. Knowledge is power. So gear up for a little storytelling and fun, sociology, fashion, economics or strategy. It’s all here in Advanced TV Herstory.

Hosted and produced by Cynthia Bemis Abrams

This is the first in a series that over time will review the fascinating construct of four women as main characters in a sitcom or drama. We’ll look at trends, deviations, themes and whether they garnered the recognition they deserved.

This installment looks at the women of Desperate Housewives – Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross. Wearing stilettos and Sperrys, evening wear, suits and short shorts, they became famous for their roles and fashionable styles. Advanced TV Herstory also explores how their performances and fame fit into the show’s legacy.
