Makers: Women in Hollywood

About This Episode


Women in Hollywood showcases the women of showbiz, from the earliest pioneers to present-day power players, as they influence the creation of one of the country’s biggest commodities: entertainment. Audiences hear from actress-producer-activist Jane Fonda; "Grey’s Anatomy" and "Scandal" television creator Shonda Rhimes; "Beauty and the Beast" screenwriter Linda Woolverton, who re-imagined the traditional Disney princess; writer-director-actress Lena Dunham of "Girls", who mines comedy and drama gold by exploring what it’s really like to be a young woman today; and six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close. Narrated by Julia Roberts.
