They talk about reunions we’ll never see, diversity and how they went about writing sex scenes.
Nahnatchka Kahn (‘Fresh Off the Boat’) joined six comedy showrunners for The Hollywood Reporter’s 2016 Emmy Showrunners Roundtable including David Mandel (‘Veep’), Aline Brosh McKenna (‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’), Marta Kauffman (‘Grace and Frankie’), Alan Yang (‘Master of None’), and Kenya Barris (‘Black-ish’).
They let it rip on the sex acts they still can’t believe they got past Standards (yes, “chicken cooping” is a real thing), why they don’t like spinoffs and the challenges that come with trying to tell your story when you don’t look like everyone else in Hollywood: “Black people don’t get to write for white people.”
The 2017 line up will feature these lovely people below. Judd Apatow, David Mandel, Kenya Barris, Gloria Calderon Kellett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Scott Silveri.
