The veteran television writer, producer, and director shares insights into Hollywood's sexual politics through anecdotes involving some of the industry's biggest names. For more than thirty years, Scovell worked behind the scenes of iconic TV shows. In 2009, she gave up her behind-the-scenes status when the David Letterman sex scandal broke. Only the second woman ever to write for his show, Scovell used the moment to publicly call out the lack of gender diversity in late-night TV writers' rooms. Her criticisms fueled a cultural debate. Now Scovell is opening up with this fun, honest, and often shocking account of a nerdy girl from New England fighting her way to the top of the highly-competitive, male-dominated entertainment field.
