First Film in the New MAKERS Series Premieres - MAKERS: Women in Comedy

The first film in the new MAKERS series, MAKERS: Women in Comedy, premieres on Tuesday, September 30 at 9pm ET/PT on PBS. This film tracks the rise of women in the world of comedy, from the "dangerous" comedy of '70s sitcoms like Maude to the groundbreaking women of the 1980s American comedy club boom and building to today's multifaceted landscape.

Contemporary comics, including Chelsea Handler, Mo'Nique, Sarah Silverman, Ellen DeGeneres, Jane Lynch, Kathy Griffin, and the incomparable Joan Rivers (in one of her last interviews) talk about where women started in this competitive, male-dominated profession and where they are determined to go.

Kathy Griffin will host a virtual screening on the film on Wednesday, October 1 at 8pm ET on MAKERS.com. The film will then live and be available for streaming anytime on MAKERS.com.

Building on the 2013 film MAKERS: Women Who Make America, which told the story of the modern American women's movement, the series will introduce a new collection of MAKERS.
