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.

This segment will focus on the women writers and women assigned other duties – and how they all influenced one of America’s most beloved TV series.

Just as we did in the first segment, we’re going to apply the framework of Jennifer Keishin Armstrong’s book to learn more about these fantastic women. Armstrong’s book, entitled Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted, was published in 2013 by Simon and Shuster. It’s a must-have and a must-read, with a lot of application to life’s challenges and today’s TV industry.

Enjoy this re-telling of the perspective of the women writers, the head of casting and two fashion plates who saw the power and the potential of this 30 minute show - and gave it their all.

I enjoyed the podcast and Armstrong's book very much. Just one correction: Winnipeg is in Manitoba, not Ontario.
