Hollywood Sexism: The Latest Stories From 11 Female Stars, From Jessica Chastain to Emma Stone

11 July 2017 10:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The conversation is changing. With each passing week, more and more female stars have shared their experiences with rampant Hollywood sexism, from horrifying stories about giving “blowjob eyes” at auditions to tales of pay inequality and pushing for more female-led stories. While the sheer scale of the stories is upsetting — it seems like every actress has their own tale to tell — that these stars feel comfortable speaking out on the subject is heartening, one step closer to an industry that doesn’t have this kind of discrimination seemingly baked into its everyday operations.

While there have certainly been misfires along the way — actress and director Elizabeth Banks was recently taken to task for (incorrectly) calling out Steven Spielberg for never directing films with female leads, and “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke compared sexism to racism in an ill-concieved statement to Rolling Stone — the recent uptick in discussion is proof that the, »

Gillian Anderson Wants ‘The X-Files’ to Hire More Female Writers and Directors

29 June 2017 2:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The X-Files” fans have a great reason to be excited since Season 11 is officially on the way, but this week news hit that should make every fan somewhat disappointed in the franchise. Earlier this week, the Season 11 writers’ room was revealed to be made up of only men — Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, James WongGabe Rotter, Benjamin Van Allen and Brad Follmer — prompting industry backlash and a call to diversify the voices behind-the-scenes. Now star Gillian Anderson has weighed in, and she’s not happy about the lack of women either.

In a tweet published earlier today, Anderson quoted a story about the all-male writers’ room and responded by also revealing only two of the series’ 207 episodes have been directed by women. That already-abysmal statistic is even worse when you consider Anderson herself directed one of the episodes. »

Gillian Anderson Criticizes ‘X-Files’ All-Male Writing Staff

29 June 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The truth is out there … and Gillian Anderson was hoping for better.

The “X-Files” star tweeted her disapproval after TVLine reported that the show’s Season 11 writer’s room is comprised of all men.

The initial report states that creator Chris Carter will be joined in the room by series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan, and James Wong. Three newcomers are also reportedly joining the team — Gabe Rotter, Benjamin Van Allen, and Brad Follmer.

“And 2 out of 207 eps directed by women,” Anderson wrote. “I too look forward to the day when the numbers are different.” She added the hashtag, #TheFutureisFemale.

Anderson has been vocal about gender equality in Hollywood in the past. When “The X-Files” was announced, following a decade-long hiatus, Anderson revealed that during the original series it took her three seasons to close the pay gap between herself and David Duchovny. What’s more, when she was approached to take part in the revival, Anderson »

‘The X-Files’ Season 11: Chris Carter Is Failing His Show By Rejecting Diversity and New Voices

28 June 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When Fox revealed this week who exactly would be writing the next season of “The X-Files,” the reaction was relatively polarized: excitement over the return of fan favorites versus dismay that creator Chris Carter had passed up the opportunity to bring new voices into the mix. The creator brought in three former assistants to join returning Season 10 writers Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.

For anyone who believes a variety of diverse voices can do a lot to improve the quality of a show’s writing, this move came as a real blow. But it wasn’t really anything new for “The X-Files.” As noted by Carly Lane at Nerdist, over the course of the show’s original nine seasons, only six women in 202 episodes ever received a writing credit:

26 June 2017 1:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The X-Files” was always a show where the quality depended largely on the writing, so paying attention to who would sign up for the upcoming Season 11 has been a high priority for fans.

And now we know: TV Line is reporting that creator Chris Carter has re-enlisted writers Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong (who all worked on Season 10) for the new season, which is shooting this summer for a early 2018 release.

In addition, three new writers have been selected to help complete the 10 episodes ordered by Fox earlier this year. And the new kids in town are Gabe Rotter, Benjamin Van Allen, and Brad Follmer — the first two were writers’ assistants on Seasons 9 and 10, while Follmer was Carter’s personal assistant during the show’s original run.

The gang’s (almost all) back together.

X-Files creator Chris Carter has finalized the writers room for the series’ forthcoming 10-episode 11th season, and, like last year’s revival (aka Season 10), it’s stacked with franchise vets.
