The series is not only revolutionary for part of an expanding social movement to push for greater diversity and quality representation in Hollywood media but for the fact that all of the episodes are directed by women.

Will & Grace

What to expect: The original run of the popular comedy series was eight seasons that aired a decade ago. In a bold move by the network, the series has been brought back for a whole new run to reunite these fan-favourite characters. The cast and show-runners in attendance will discuss the show's legacy and offer some insight on what viewers can expect with this new run.


Panel: September 22, 5:30 PM

Attending: Executive Producer Oprah Winfrey

What to expect: Oprah Winfrey will be joined by the series creators to discuss this gripping new series that is set to air on the OWN network, which will address the topic of mass incarceration in the States. The first 90 days after inmates are released from prison is said to be a crucial period during which they must quickly find a way to reintegrate themselves back into society to better their chances of not returning to prison.
