Terry’s Picks: Leslie Jones, Writers Lab, Blockbuster Directors

Leslie Jones: After making a splash with her infectiously joyous – not to mention hilarious – tweets about the Olympics, SNL’s Leslie Jones was invited by NBC to go to Rio to cover the rest of the competition. It’s lovely to watch – especially after Jones had to take a break from Twitter after receiving so many hateful messages surrounding the Ghostbusters premiere.

Writers Lab: Congrats to the 12 phenomenal women screenwriters over 40 selected for The Writers Lab this year!

Blockbuster Directors: No shocker here – women filmmakers do want to direct blockbuster movies. IndieWire examines why they don’t.
