Abstract

Glazed, the pilot episode of a situation comedy series, is just beginning to explore what the world of television has in store for women in 2018. At a time like now where women across the nation are feeling the important effects of entering the Fourth Wave of feminism, there is no time like the present to celebrate the beautiful mind that is that of a woman.

For far too long, women in television have been just something to merely look at. More often than not, the crew would be comprised of mostly men: the strong-willed directors, the scandalous producers, the joke writers at the table. What are some of the goals that women in the industry are aiming to accomplish? What are the effects of having women present based on talent and merit, as opposed to having them around for just something to “look at?” During an exciting time for women everywhere, we embark on a journey to a land previously held by mostly men. Our time is now, and there’s no time like the present.
