Episode Eleven: Shadi Petosky Has Seen The Future of TV

The BinderCast is the only podcast exclusively devoted to women and gender non-conforming writers and their careers. In each episode, co-hosts Lux Alptraum and Leigh Stein tackle the essential questions of making it as a writer. Produced by Jennifer Lai.

Between Netflix, Amazon, Seeso, and every other streaming platform out there, there’s never been quite so much opportunity for TV writers – but how, exactly, does an aspiring screenwriter break into the biz and get herself a deal? On this week’s episode of The BinderCast, Danger & Eggs creator Shadi Petosky shares how she went from designing websites to pitching kids’ shows – and what it takes to get a show from pitch to development to full fledged series. Shadi also talks about what it’s like to be a transwoman working in Hollywood, discussing how far the industry’s come in its treatment of transpeople, and how very, very far it still has to go.
