Finding projects that make her happy — and offer something new — is essential to Niecy Nash-Betts. The strategy is clearly working, because the actress-producer is everywhere these days. "Anything is possible," says the star–executive producer of ABC's The Rookie: Feds. "It's never too late."

"Otherness" creates togetherness on Los Espookys, HBO's mostly-Spanish-language horror comedy brought to you from Santiago, Chile, by three ingenious producers — two of whom have roots in SNL.

For fifty years, PBS's Great Performances has been giving all Americans access to the greatest of the performing arts. As Julie Andrews says, "You don't even have to go to the theater! It all comes to you."

Bradley Whitford

Fifteen years after his prior directing gig, the actor steps back behind the camera, wondering why he waited so long.

For the cast and crew of The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power, there will forever be a boundary in their lives — between what came before the landmark series and what comes after. That's especially true for coshowrunners Patrick McKay and JD Payne, who conceived more than fifty hours of storytelling.

Sarah Schechter

A commitment to social justice drives the producer, who proves that business success can coexist with art that makes a difference. 

Charlie Collier

The "power of broadcast" drives the former cable ace leading Fox Entertainment. And he'll be glad to tell you about it while he shows you around the lot. Fox's content creators are equally glad to have him. "Once he supports you," says producer Howard Gordon, "he's all in."

Tatiana Maslany

The actress gets to smash the patriarchy, among other objects, in her cheeky double role as your average attorney and the six-foot-seven She-Hulk. A Marvel exec exults of Disney+'s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law: "It's one of the boldest shows we've ever done."

Vera Farmiga

When Hurricane Katrina left a hospital without power, clean water and medical supplies for five long days, the staff wrestled with ethical challenges no one would choose to face. In the Apple TV+ series, Carlton Cuse and John Ridley retell the story and renew the debate, leaving viewers to wonder, What would I have done?

Three years after the finale of Game of Thrones, a prequel unfolds in Westeros. How does HBO's House of the Dragon follow in the wake of its audacious, Emmy-amassing forebear? Proudly and boldly. "We're trying... if not to replicate it, then certainly to honor it in what we're doing," says cocreator Ryan Condal. "We want this to feel like a different time and place."

South Park

Trey Parker and Matt Stone — the creative forces behind Comedy Central's South Park — discuss the evolution of their series and their all-time favorite episodes.

The Shrink Next Door

The true story of a New York psychiatrist who co-opted his patient's life drew pals Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell, though neither knew each was circling the tale. With Rudd as the shrink and Ferrell as the mark, Apple TV+'s The Shrink Next Door unspools an I-kid-you-not tale that could send some viewers to the couch.
