Women dominating the new TV season. The Fall lineup from Prime Suspect to Pan Am and the Playboy club
It’s hard to say if the new fall television line-up is a woman’s heaven or a woman’s hell, but it’s definitely all about women. From “Prime Suspect” to “The Playboy Club,” “2 Broke Girls” to “Pan Am,” and “Homeland” to “Whitney” and much more, in show after show, women are at the heart of the fall schedule. They’re tough, they’re retro, they’re dorky, they’re raunchy. They’re half-naked “bunnies” and fighters who will take you down. What is it in the culture right now that has studios so high on women?
This hour On Point: TV goes big on women.
