Join Movieline Today at Comic-Con's Girls Gone Genre Panel
Women are an undeniable force in pop entertainment, both in the audience and behind the scenes, as the annual GIRLS GONE GENRE panel at Comic-Con attests. So what is the state of storytelling for women creatives working (and, frankly, kicking ass) today? Why is the genre world such fertile ground for female storytellers and strong, complex female characters? Join me as I moderate a panel of all-stars from TV and film — Marti Noxon (Buffy, Angel, Fright Night), Jane Espenson (Battlestar Galactica, Torchwood), Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), Angela Robinson (True Blood, D.E.B.S.) and Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator) — today at Comic-Con. Details after the jump!
Genre entertainment has historically been a man's world on and off-screen, but these writers, directors, producers, showrunners, and performers have established themselves by bringing compelling characters and stories to audiences hungry for good storytelling, no matter their gender. From Sarah Connor to Buffy Summers to Starbuck and beyond, our panelists have helped shape some of the strongest female screen icons and the most compelling TV and film properties of the past few decades, and I couldn't be more honored or excited to be a part of this conversation.
If you're at Comic-Con, join us today from 6:00pm to 7:00pm in Room 7AB in the San Diego Convention Center, and stay tuned for a recap of our discussion...
