The Paley Center and WNET are launching  “She’s Making Media,” a new series of programs that puts a slightly different lens on the subject of women’s role in media. At the Paley Center will celebrate women who are making media—media with a purpose. The series concentrates on a woman who has used media in new and innovative ways.

In each unique and compelling half hour episode, the guest’s life-story is intertwined with numerous examples of her work, taking advantage of the Paley Center’s Collection. A unique, signature element of At The Paley Center is a short performance, reading, or monologue selected and performed by the guest: for example, Marlo Thomas reads an excerpt from her autobiography about her marriage to Phil Donahue; Jane Fonda reads an excerpt from her book about her decision to end her marriage to Ted Turner; Eve Ensler performs a short monologue; and Glenn Close sings an a cappella rendition of a lullaby she coauthored for her current film, Albert Nobbs. This very personal coda to the show is selected by each guest.

Episodes of At the Paley Center will stream online after each week’s premiere at
