In our latest JoCo Cruise interview, Anita talks to writer and showrunner Amy Berg, who has worked on shows such as Leverage, Eureka, Person of Interest, and Starz’ current hit sci-fi series Counterpart. Here, Berg recounts the bold way she once got Joss Whedon’s attention, the unproduced Lost script that helped her make a name for herself, and all the things that go into being showrunner on a major TV series. Anita also talks to Berg about consciously doing the work to create a more inclusive television landscape, and what impact our current political landscape is likely to have on the visions of the future that television will give us in the years ahead.
