Bob Daily (Superior Donuts), Justin Simien (creator, Dear White People), Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon Kellett (creators, One Day at a Time), and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel (The Carmichael Show) discuss taking their inspiration from Norman Lear and incorporating issues and debates that are meant to challenge and teach. From race to gender, and politics to religion, these sitcom writers achieve bigger conversations about issues that make a difference in your life, while still making you laugh. Moderated by CNN's Sandra Gonzalez. Recorded at ATX Television Festival on June 10, 2017.
