Weekly Roundup: #HireTheseWomen, Diane Sawyer & Comedy Central Prez Michele Ganeless


Diane Sawyer
steps down from World News and up to bigger projects.

Inspired by Women and Hollywood’s directors infographic, film critic Miriam Bale launches the hashtag #HireTheseWomen.

Director Kelly Reichardt may be the most successful indie “one trick pony” in the business.

Michele Ganeless runs Comedy Central, not Stephen Colbert.

Chicken & Egg pictures is accepting grant applications for women documentary filmmakers until July 1, 6 pm EST.

Vanessa Bayer is a hit on both SNL and her web series Sound Advice.

On OITNB she’s “Crazy Eyes,” in reality, Uzo Aduba likes Wilson Phillips.
