“[Young audiences] are more concerned with feeling like a part of the experience and feeling like what they’re watching is authentic and not staged and set up.” —Liza Glucoft
“Women are realizing they can be boss bitches or whatever it is, girl bosses, but there is this final top layer that’s almost impossible to penetrate. And it’s tough.” —Liza Glucoft
“That is so important to me, us all helping each other and helping younger women find their voice too. That’s one of the most fulfilling parts of my job now is… there are some younger female producers I work with, and I feel like I get to help them find their voice in a way maybe a male producer couldn’t do.” —Liza Glucoft
“People just get scared of failure. They get scared someone’s going to get mad at them… I think changing the dialogue for people and making them feel more empowered [is important] because, honestly, men don’t apologize all the time. They don’t feel the need to be like, ‘Oh sorry. I messed up.’” —Liza Glucoft
