Better Than Ever: Women on Television Are Fighting Ageism–And Winning

Sep 26, 2017
7:00 PM ET
New York

Join award-winning producer and president of HBO’s documentary division Sheila Nevins for a panel discussion—cosponsored by AARP—on sustaining a career in an historically ageist industry and how several women are thriving in the new “golden era” of television programming. Among those joining the discussion are Marlo Thomas, who came to fame with her pioneering single woman series That Girl and has been recently seen on Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later and Ballers; Carol Kane, who played one of TV’s best loved sitcom characters of the 1980s, Simka Dahbiltz, on Taxi and is currently appearing on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt; and Tovah Feldshuh, whose early appearances include a key role on the acclaimed miniseries Holocaust, and more recently has been seen on series like The Walking Dead, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Salvation. Also providing her perspective on the topic will be Cheryl Wills, NY1 weekend evening anchor and host of In Focus with Cheryl Wills.
