I just put together a table of 21st-century comedies that are woman-centered and was surprised to see just how many of them had women creators, showrunners, and/or executive producers. Even if you drop out the EP’s that are just vanity titles, that’s an awful lot of woman-powered shows.
Can you think of any I’ve left out? It seems odd that I couldn’t find shows that launched in 2016 or 2017.
“w” marks shows with a woman creator, showrunner, executive producer.
