Steven Canals on specificity in storytelling




“Specificity is what an audience is looking for. In my work I lean all the way into it. I couldn’t imagine telling this story and not leaning all the way into the specificity of what it means to be black or Latin, queer or trans,” Steven Canals says of creating “Pose” on the FX special “Peabody Presents: Stories of the Year.” Canals joined fellow award winners for an in-depth discussion on the challenges and triumphs behind powerful storytelling.
