It's a Power Play
This Moment in entertainment has brought to light an undeniable abundance of wrongs. From sexual harassment to misogyny, sexism and racism to lack of inclusion, it is all wrapped up in a single word: Power. The TV industry has been host to a litany of these issues, showcasing what happens when power is imbalanced, and the repercussions that follow when it goes unchecked. So who has the Power? How are they keeping and using it? Are things getting easier (and safer) for those historically at risk when they speak out? Most importantly, where do we go from here? Join executives and creatives to discuss their own experiences with Power (both having it or being victim to it), the new strides towards inclusion, and answering the question of where they see this Moment going next.

Lodge 49
“Lodge 49” is a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Wyatt Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud serendipitously finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge, where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and “Luminous Knight” of the order, Ernie (Brent Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may — or may not — put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he's lost. Jim Gavin (Author, Middle Men) serves as creator, writer, and executive-producer alongside showrunner Peter Ocko (Pushing Daisies, The Office). Additional executive producers include Paul Giamatti (“Billions,” Sideways, Outsiders, Hoke), Dan Carey (Outsiders, Hoke, John Dies at the End, All Is Bright) and Jeff Freilich (“Halt and Catch Fire,” “Grace and Frankie”).
