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

An earlier installment of Advanced TV Herstory took us back to the first few seasons of the long-running medical drama, ER. Specifically, we reviewed the characters of Nurse Carol Hathaway and Doctor Susan Lewis. Fast forward a dozen years and viewers were still tuning in to the drama inside County General every Thursday night. 

This segment of Advanced TV Herstory celebrates the producers’ decision to ride out the series with the incredibly talented Angela Bassett at the helm as Dr. Cate Banfield. Oscar-nominee, Golden Globe winner and BET standard-bearer Bassett made the 15th season well worth watching.
