About Us

Hollywood has been brought to its metaphorical knees by the pandemic. Production has stopped. Easy funding has dried up. Audiences are holed up and anxious. International alliances (China) may be broken. And no one knows when any of it will change.

Hollywood, The Sequel is a limited-run podcast series in which leading journalist John Horn asks some of the most important and influential people in film, television and entertainment at large (established stars and emerging taleånt) about how they hope Hollywood will change in this moment of severe disruption.

Latest Episodes

"Rewriting Hollywood's Story" with Janet Mock

With the FX series "Pose," writer/director Janet Mock became the first trans woman of color to write and direct a TV episode. The show features more transgender actors in regular roles than any other scripted series. That kind of representation, Mock says, has real power to change attitudes and behavior toward trans people. She also believes that the industry gatekeepers are beginning to realize that she’s able to tell more than one kind of story.

“Realistic Optimist/Optimistic Realist" with Lesli Linka Glatter

While the pandemic rages on, “Homeland” director Lesli Linka Glatter is part of a select group crafting safety protocols designed to allow production to resume. But she’s worried about another danger--that some of the gains made in racial and gender equity will slip away. She’s calling on her peers and the studios to make a firm commitment to hire outside their comfort zones.

“If we have to resort to shame..." with Gloria Calderon Kellett

For Hollywood executives trying to fix the industry’s diversity problem, producer and actor Gloria Calderon Kellett has a simple piece of advice: just do it--even if it means you have to work through your own discomfort. The showrunner of “One Day at a Time” points to her own writers’ room and cast as proof that it’s not a “favor” to hire a diverse team--it makes everybody’s storytelling richer and more honest.

“Hollywood’s Loss Is Hollywood’s Gain” with Jason Reed

When work resumes in Hollywood, the business of show business will be very different, from how films are made, to where they’re shown, to what defines a box office hit. “Mulan” Producer Jason Reed is dealing with those challenges now, as he waits for the much-delayed release of his film. But he’s hopeful that some of the changes will lead to lasting solutions to Hollywood’s problems. He’s advocating for better financial support for the freelancers who are the backbone of Hollywood’s gig economy. He’s also calling for changes in the executive suites, so that more diverse voices can “shift the dominant paradigm.” Hollywood, The Sequel sponsors include: Stream We Are Freestyle Love Supreme beginning July 17, only on Hulu

“First Responder Filmmaking” with Kenya Barris

With his comedy series “Black-ish” and “#blackAF,” Kenya Barris has never avoided difficult conversations about race. Entertainment, especially comedy, he says, will push those conversations forward, but there need to be many more versions of what Black lives and other underrepresented experiences look like.

“Big Checks and Bandaids Won’t Do It” with Ava DuVernay

Just as advocates for meaningful police reform say you can't simply reassemble broken pieces, Ava DuVernay argues that reform won’t be enough to fix Hollywood. The director of “Selma” and “When They See Us” believes it’ll take drastic change in the executive suites of the networks and studios if Hollywood wants to rid itself of bias.

"The Personal is Political" with Kerry Washington

The ACLU lawyers in “The Fight,” Kerry Washington’s new documentary, want justice for all. And so, too, does Washington. The actor and producer says when work begins again, it won't be enough for Hollywood to be not racist. It has to be actively anti-racist if the industry wants to be an agent of change.
