The VP of original documentary and comedy programming for the world's leading streaming service discusses how she came to the company when it was still in the DVD-by-mail biz, how docs and comedy have evolved since and the stories behind her most lauded projects — including four doc features ('Chasing Coral', 'Icarus', 'One of Us' and 'Strong Island') and two doc shorts ('Heroin(e)' and 'Ram Dass, Going Home') that have been Oscar-shortlisted this season.

But first: Alison Brower, THR's deputy editorial director, joins Scott to discuss her path to journalism, her prior work at women's magazines and THR's coverage of President Trump and Hollywood's sexual misconduct scandal.

Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
