She told The Huffington Post: “There’s plenty of room for improvement, but I have to say I think things are moving the right direction. The explosion of cable channels and the new opportunities that sites like Hulu, and Netflix, and Amazon provide means that there’s room for a lot of different stories and voices. The mainstream still tends to paint a pretty narrow picture of us, though, so we’re still faced with that. And I spend a lot of my time doing theater where there’s a real struggle to get our writers produced. There’s energy building, though. I’m optimistic.”
