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.
