Alex and Nick invite the Chairs of the WGAW Committee of Black Writers, Michelle Amor (Playin’ for Love, Of Boys and Men, The Honorable), Hilliard Guess (Deadly Class, We Got Issues, Ticker), and Bianca Sams (Charmed, The Originals, Training Day), to have an in-depth discussion about systematic racism and injustice in the entertainment industry towards Black writers, representation in and out of the writers’ room, plus various ways TV writers and professionals of all levels can be part of the solution.
