Natalia Leite: Queer Women in TV: Angela Robinson
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Blatantly advocating for anything inside the mainstream Hollywood paradigm is no easy task, so Angela Robinson, who champions gay rights while also charming audiences who enjoy pure entertainment, is like a superhero. Currently a writer and executive producer for the hit TV show True Blood, she also wrote and directed the film D.E.B.S. and TV shows The L Word and Hung. Generally carrying strong political statements, the stories she creates still manage to remain fun, sexy, and action-packed, thus appealing to a broad audience. As a True Blood fan, I was really excited to learn more about her experiences working in television. Natalia Leite: Angela, how did you start writing and directing for television? Angela Robinson: My first job in TV was kind of a confluence of events. I made a short film of D.E.B.S. that was seen by Ilene Chaiken (the creator of The L Word) and Larry Kennar (one of the executive producers), and at the time they were looking for a "funny lesbian" t ...

Tomas Mournian: Katherine Brooks Dishes On 'The Osbournes,' Celebrity Drug Use, Reality TV And 'Face 2 Face'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
I had no intention of watching Katherine (Kat) Brooks' new documentary, Face 2 Face. I'd requested a different screener (preview) from OUTFest but soon figured out they'd misburned the DVD. Watching it, I thought, "Wait, this isn't the film. What the fuck is this? Is this even in the festival? Oh... she's dying? I've gotta watch this. Maybe it's about what happened to her after she died?" I kept watching and realized, "Wait! She's survived her overdose! And she's alive!" And from then on I was hooked. My reaction to Face 2 Face was an emotional rollar coaster: bafflement, impatience, emotional devasatation, discomfort, and, finally, a sort of peaceful resolve. Intrigued, I sought out Katherine Brooks' biography and filmography, and reading them, I realized I'd stumbled upon one of those mythic L.A. creatures: the Power Lesbian. Brooks' TV credits start with three seasons of the Emmy-Award-winning The Osbournes and 28 episodes of The Real World: San Diego. She also pr ...
