Some other SAB writers and I did a Q and A today with some USC students who are spending their summer compiling research on diversity in TV and Film. They’re combing through the top 100 grossing movies from 2013 and compiling data: the usage of female leads, minority characters, etc. 1.) I remember before I started working in TV, the process was such a mystery, and so I always love engaging in some realtalk with aspiring writers, so that the process is less evasive to them.  2.) I am comforted by the fact that there’s a conference room of smart undergrads somewhere devoting their summer to studying every little thing. 3.) FREE SANDWICHES.
