Terry’s Picks: Loving Lifetime, Fox’s Failure, Congrats Katharina

Loving Lifetime: Check out this great read on Buzzfeed about the evolution of Lifetime from “guiltily pleasure” to “groundbreaking television.” Women wrote or directed 73% of the network’s original films from 1994 to 2016, and its new initiative called the “Fempire” will draw together linear, digital, social and community partnerships with the goal of “entertaining and engaging the next generation of feminists.”

Fox’s Failure: 20th Century Fox released its 23-film slate for 2016-2017…with not one feature directed by a woman.

Congrats, Katharina: NYWIFT member Katharina Otto-Bernstein co-produced the documentary Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures about the controversial artist – it’s getting rave reviews! Watch it on HBO.
