Podcast cover

As the Frame is on hiatus, we are sharing the new show by John Horn, "Hollywood, The Sequel." The limited-run podcast series  asks some of the entertainment industry’s most influential artists and executives how Hollywood could and should reinvent itself.

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.

As the Frame is on hiatus, we are sharing the new show by John Horn, "Hollywood, The Sequel." The limited-run podcast series  asks some of the entertainment industry’s most influential artists and executives how Hollywood could and should reinvent itself.

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 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.
