Nell Scovell had a dream career working in television. She’s worked on every classic I can remember. And she even created a show, “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” She took tired sitcom plots and put them through what she calls a “magical blender.” And out came something original. She told me how her ambition to be a prominent female television writer gave her these amazing opportunities that us men can only dream of. And how being on the sidelines gave her the confidence to lead a team to success.
