The panel is called “Abortion and Reproductive Rights on TV: Advancing the Narrative.” It will explore how abortion is represented on TV and how TV can further improve depictions of abortion by creating awareness and encouraging better representation.
The other panelists include: Carina Adly Mackenzie (Showrunner/Executive Producer, “Roswell, New Mexico”), Merritt Tierce (Writer, “Orange is the New Black”), Jacey Heldrich (Writer, “The Handmaid’s Tale”), and Janine Sherman Barrois (Showrunner/Executive Producer, “Claws”).
The panel will be pre-recorded and available in the VOD Library. This Library is only available to Festival Badgeholders, which means that if you only bought a Day Pass for the Degrassi event you won’t have access to it. Badges are still available for purchase and cost $150 USD.
