Text by Margaret Blanchard, Video by Wes Unruh - 8/20/19


Just four short years ago, “Pose” was a program that executives, studios and networks weren’t interested in producing, according to Steven Canals, co-creator, in this Peabody Conversation. Joined by writer/producer Our Lady J and cast members Indya Moore and Mj Rodgriquez, the team discusses why the groundbreaking program strikes a chord. Peabody Awards honored the first season of the FX series for “doing as much important representational work and storytelling in its quieter moments as on the ballroom floor.”
