"Before you got engaged that indicated like, ah, something may be a little off or something feels unsettled about this person. Yes. And that was a lot of my work in listening to my intuition. I have a very particular style of integrity that I move in the world with. And I really believe in spiritual hygiene. And I think that good choice making compassionate choice making it's incredibly important to my life. So I used to get those kind of worlds blurred where I felt like I had to, when I saw people that weren't in integrity, it was because they just didn't know. And I needed to show or I needed to help. So I am a super, super reformed fixer, and people pleaser. I'm the person that used to want to do everyone's work for them and just no, no, no, but look, read this book and did it and I was taking it all on and gratefully. That is no longer my life. But yeah, when I look back at that friendship, absolutely. We had been childhood friends and I saw those treats in that person. I remember clearly having mental notes way back at ten. Noticing how they were kind of treating people or making things about them. And I just let it go on for way too long. And then I saw the biggest because when things aren't super affecting you, when they're more like kind of tiny irritations, it's just kind of like, yeah, that's them being them. But when you keep that dynamic in your life, when they have the opportunity to do it at a higher stake. They will. And so you need a curb it when you first notice that it is so important. Yeah. And who knows, you know, what kind of abandonment kinds of history there may have been, you know, I don't know, of course, this person, but what got activated, but clearly something got activated with your engagement, which then led to all of this behavior kind of really stepping up a notch. Yeah. Lasting peace lasting peace to all involved. I have a very specific question for you. This is, I'm so curious. Doctor joy therapy for black girls has been such a leader in the mental health space. One of the data points around therapy for black women is that only 5% of U.S. therapists are black, can you speak to the importance of speaking with therapists that have deeper understanding of your cultural needs, but specifically some of the personality traits experiences and trauma that seem to happen within particular communities. Is it important to find someone that looks like you or understands your experience to unpack yourself with? Yeah. So I would say it is important if it feels important to you. 'cause that won't necessarily be a qualifier for a lot of people, right? But I do think at least my experience has been there for a lot of black women that does feel very, very important because there are some things that you just assume that another black woman will understand, right? Like so when I think about going through the pandemic and then all of the continued racial injustice, George Floyd being killed, Breonna Taylor being killed, there are ways that I think black women took in those stories and experienced those things that you just get, right? And so if I came to the session the week after finding out about Breonna's healer, I'm not going to have to go into too much backstory with my therapist because my therapist is also a black woman because there are some things that I know that she understands because she's also a black woman in this country. So I think for people who that is important, it is absolutely okay to kind of chase that to look out that look for that in your search. But as you mentioned, there are not that many of us, right? And so with that means is that either people end up on waiting lists or people will see therapists who aren't necessarily black women. So that means that you see a black man or somebody else, one other person of color, but what that means for other therapists who are not black is that there are some work that they need to do so that they are creating conditions that are safe for black women to come into therapy to unpack these kinds of things. So there are lots of microaggressions and ruptures that happen with non black therapists because there's this questioning of reality, right? Like, did that really happen in the way that you are saying it or, you know, now tell me why you would be so impacted by this thing that has nothing to do with you, right? Other therapists really need to make sure that they are doing their own work so that they're not perpetrating those kinds of things that then make it difficult for people to even continue to believe in therapy. So because a lot of our families, there's not a lot of history of parents and grandparents and aunties and uncles going to therapy. A lot of times we are the first ones who maybe having that experience. And so if we don't have a good experience, then that sometimes leaves us feeling like, oh, this isn't actually helpful. This made me feel worse. So why would I pay somebody to go and do this thing? So I do think it is, if it feels important to you to find a therapist who matches you in some way, it is absolutely okay to do that. But I do think that there are also a lot of therapists who may not match you, right? And so I typically encourage people to just be open to surprises, right? But not to betray yourself again by continuing in weeks and weeks of therapy with somebody who's like perpetuating racism against you absolutely not. There are some therapists who have done their work, they have done incredible work, working with other black women. And so they actually may be a good match for you, but you might not know that if you're not open to seeing if somebody else might be a good match for you.

"Lead you in a life where you feel like a healthy functioning adult that can meet your own needs. So I think, you know, a lot of people that are even in friendships and communities that they do love, they don't know anything different. It may not be in the plan for them to uproot and find a new tribe. Are there ways to kind of bring some healing and to upgrade the way we are in friendships with each other without having to find new friends? I mean, yeah, that's basically the premise of the book is this idea that you're right. A lot of us have not come from homes where that was role model for us. And generations and the generation before them, a lot of what they had to do was really survival based, right? So there were decisions that they made that unfortunately impacted us in some ways that didn't really foster our emotions, but in a lot of ways, it was what they felt like they had to do. But I do think because we are having these kinds of conversations right now, it provides an excellent opportunity for us to be able to do that healing work with one another, right? So can I say to you as my sister ouch, that hurt, and that doesn't mean that the friendship ends, it just means that this is now an opportunity for us to talk about it and how can I hold you accountable? How can you learn from this situation and it not be that you're a bad person? I think we have to really look at either offensiveness and how that often comes up when we've heard someone, but it doesn't mean that you're bad. It just means ouch that hurt me and I want to talk about how we can continue to be in relationship and you not do that thing or you not hurt me in that same way in the future. So I think our sister circled really provide an important opportunity for us to actually do that healing work with one another. Wow. Wow. I'm so excited for all of us, this time of they're just being more space for vulnerabilities and they're being like space for being in practice with the things that you just didn't know. You know, I feel like there wasn't as much grace for those processes or they're just weren't as many people trying to do it at the same time previously. Yeah. You use a very important word there, David practice. We are all really just practicing being human. There is no perfection in this many workshops that we go to and books we read and podcasts we listen to like we're all just practicing. And so I think it is really important for us to be graced gracious with one another, but I think there has to be some limits to that, right? So you don't want to be extending so much grace that you're actually betraying yourself, right? You know? So I think that there is sometimes work that we need to do individually that needs to happen before we're really able to kind of be in circles in full ways. So I think that, again, back to our earlier conversation around boundaries. You can't continue to let somebody kind of overstep your boundaries and not redraw them and say, okay, I would like to still be in relationship with you, but this is what it looks like. So maybe that looks like less access, maybe that looks like just more spread out when we get together. But I don't think that you want to offer so much grace that you are then betraying yourself. Thank you for saying that, because a boundary grace is what we're after. I love that. I'm passionate, extended to self first, then others is what we're after. Yeah, and I think, again, back to our earlier conversation about just how draining and how much has happened in the past couple of years. I think that that is also something that impacts our relationships is that we are trying to offer with not from the overflow, right? So the idea is that you refill yourselves so that you are able to be in relationship with others from your overflow. But if you are all tapped out, that may be why your little cranky with your friends or where you're feeling like, oh, I don't want to answer this call, right? So it does really have it goes back to really making sure that we're taking care of ourselves and doing the kinds of things that we need to do so that we can actually be in healthy relationship to other people.

So some people that are in friendship for many friendship is your created family. That is maybe your safe space for the first time.

Let's check this hour's top business stories and the markets big news after the bell in the states Netflix reported membership growth way above forecast the company added 7.66 million paid streaming customers globally, the estimate was only looking for four and a half million. Netflix is also planning to resume its stock buyback program this year. Equally as important cofounder Reed Hastings is stepping down from his role as CEO after leading the company for 25 years to longtime associates, Ted sarandos and Greg Peters will be stepping in as co CEOs now sarandos is already a co CEO. He is really the public face of Netflix in Hollywood. Peter's previously the COO has overseen the production development and the push into advertising should point out that mister Hastings will remain as executive chairman. Earlier on Bloomberg daybreak, Asia, Bloomberg's Michelle gem risco spoke with Bloomberg's Lucas Shaw team leader of entertainment media and telecom. You used the word shocking earlier. I would say I do feel like he's been sort of laying the groundwork for this transition in that a couple of years ago. He named Ted sarandos, his co CEO and Greg Peters, the COO, which sort of I think signaled to some that he was easing his way out. And yet it is still a pretty momentous day for this company that has been founder led since its inception. Lucas, it sounds like it's a pretty orderly shift of power. I mean, are there any questions about how Peters and the others are going to handle this big company? Now you have two people in sarandos and Peters who have sort of they've been executives. They've been caretakers. They worked for the boss, but they are not founders and thus there's just like a little bit less respect that some people will have for them. And you think about long-term sarandos has I probably feels a little bit like he was sort of higher ranking than Peter's and how does he feel about the fact that he's not named sole CEO when they disagree about something how are they going to resolve that? They will say that they have a lot of experience working together and this will be okay. But I think it's perfectly reasonable to ask questions about whether there will be any tension here.

"Who did acid in the 70s. There you go. Yes, exactly. Hi, Dana. So you were in Iceland. What were you doing there? I was enjoying gender equality and no pay gap. It was an incredible country. I was working. I was on a cruise with 300 lovely lesbians and a couple of men that worked on the ship. And it was wonderful. I was making people laugh and we were getting some reprieve from this crap show that is the United States of America at the moment. Yes, yes it is yes it is yes it is. So. Yesterday we were talking about abortion rights. This is a very disturbing story in Alabama That's all you needed to say. Alabama, enough said. To say Alabama, I'm a people. It's just specifically some of the people in Alabama that are causing the problems. Exactly. Apparently this woman was put in jail to protect her fetus. Because she was arrested with an unregistered gun in a small amount of pot and normally she would have been let out, but because she found out she was pregnant after she had smoked pot. They decided to incarcerate her. This is a story say what her ethnicity might be, maybe the color of her skin is a little bit of pot and a gun. I'm just curious. I can't imagine it was a white woman. Her name is Ashley banks. That's all I can tell you. But according to attorneys, she's not the only one several pregnant women and new moms accused of exposing their fetuses to drugs have been held for weeks or months inside the Ottawa county detention center under a special bond conditions that will require rehab and $10,000 cash. So I don't have that money. If this was a white woman, she would probably be free to roam. And that's my problem in this story. I don't know what it is. I don't know the specifics, but I just think there's two systems of justice we have in this country, so it would be interesting to know if who actually is. I would really like to know. I know I'm speculating, but history has proven. It's not a bad speculation by any court document show that she's already been rushed to the hospital during her incarceration because she started bleeding and was diagnosed with a sub, I can't pronounce that. She's diagnosed with a hematoma. I can pronounce that where the blood was pooling around the wall of the uterus, which doesn't sound safe for the fetus. I hope she's okay. The jail responded by letting her sleep on the bottom bunk how sweet. But two women were also assigned to sleep on that bug. So she ended up sleeping on the floor where she was bleeding for 5 weeks. Internally. I don't know if she's, I don't know if the pregnancy is still going. Yeah. And banana has a personhood statute that was enacted in 2019. Since Alabama considers an embryo or fetus to be a person at a county, could be put in some wrongful death suits if people are miscarrying in their care. Because then, I mean, this is just awful that they're incarcerating people that don't need to be incarcerated. We knew in rows overturned people were going to die and substantially, women of color at a rate much higher than anyone else. And so this is not surprising to any of us. It's horrifying. It's horrifying that that's where we are in this country, but unfortunately the story is not surprising to me. Well, and then women are having to like, they're not having viable pregnancies, but because they're still a heartbeat detected, they're not allowed to terminate the pregnancy until a heartbeat goes away. So they're holding these dying fetuses in their bodies. They could go necrotic on them, and they could get infected. I mean, it's just, it's horrific, you know, and I had one of our dear listeners in Chicago who has my phone number because we are Friends just correct me. And so on air, live, I will be, I will stand corrected. This is a white woman. I'm shocked. That they put her in jail immediately, but it is Alabama and it is the law and so there's going to be thousands upon thousands of women non binary and trans men that are affected by this. And it's also fair for you to think that data because Ashley banks was the name of the daughter on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. So there is a thank you very much. That's maybe what I was thinking of trash. Thanks for sharing me. It's been weeks and months. Played by Tatiana Ali. I'm sure there's already letters being written to the show going what the hell is going on with Dana. Send her back to ivy. And you said you love the weather in Iceland. It was nice this time of year. Are you kidding me with my hot flashes and the fact that Los Angeles has been moved on to the center of the sun? It was a lovely place to be. Yeah, I mean, because I got COVID a couple of weeks ago. Yes. And so I watched the saga. The saga has been unfolding. And then I got a rebound case of it because I was on pax livid. And of course, three bound case happens right as the heat wave starts because before I can at least have the windows open and get some fresh air in the house. So the last week or so I haven't been able to really get any fresh air, which is not also good for you. At all, you know? It's supposed to be hurricane tomorrow, right? Yeah. I'm on Saturday. Saturday night. On Saturday. There's a chance of rain this morning. I'm looking out my window and that chance is zero at this point. Welcome home Dana. What's the name of the hurricane that we're supposed to be getting? I think it's K KA one. Okay. Hurricane Kay. So okay, let's see if this is are you going to work for me? Will you answer Kevin for me? You answered? There he is. Hi, Kevin and D.C.. How are you? Well, good morning, everybody. And I finally had been missing being in the middle of two alabaster ranges as usual, but now I have two of them. Welcome to. And I'm upset with the move who got to you first about mentioning Ashley. I started out with my nerd correction. How dare you? Oh, that was Travis. Well, that's because I've been watching her on RuPaul's secret celebrity drag race lately, so her name is fresh in my head It just trips me out to that cute little girl so grown there. I can't. I can't imagine it. But I was calling for two things, first, what a treat and a pleasure, what does he do Obama's back in The White House and how I regret we didn't go straight from the obamas to a Hillary and or at least a democratic president that the type of country can where we'd have if we'd had that transition instead of that, I can't say the word over the year.

"I sent my multiple arms like they do every single time I do this. And I don't know what happened. I woke up. All the time, like I always envision this and dread it. Which is why you can't sleep in those possible because you're worried about waking up. I wake up, I look at the phone, I see two 50 7, I was like, oh my God. Oh my God. I can't imagine the panic attack. But here's the thing. You know I love you, but I gotta say you did a bad job here. You told me one thing there that makes me think you did a bit. Because anyone can oversleep. Anyone can oversleep. You know, sometimes Elon messes up. I got all that. You're on a crazy schedule. You did 6 to ten in the morning last week. Now you're doing to. Right. You woke up at one O 7 to pay and went back to sleep. That's a badge. That you should not have done. But if you had to be on the air two, if my alarm is set for one 30 or one 40, what's the difference? Because I'll tell you what the difference is. And I want the listeners to weigh in here on Twitter when you hear this. When you wake up from a nap, you go back for a double dip, that second nap fucks you up. That's a fact. You can't do a second nap in a row back to back like that. That puts you in that state where you're like catatonic, you don't know where you are. So if you got up at one O 7 to pay and you had to be on the air at two and you went back for a couple of extra minutes and I don't know, I wonder in that state if I shut the alarm off, I don't know what happened, but I know I think I know what happened. When you go back for that second back to back nap, you go into a deeper, it knocks you the hell out. You were in a coma, you didn't know where you were. Yeah, apparently. All right, last thing here before we wrap, I'm a couple of years older than you, but for me, my first two crushes in life were Marcia Brady and Olivia Newton-John at the end of Greece. Did you have the Olivia Newton-John affection that a lot of people might age did? No, I loved grief though. One of my all time favorite movies as a kid, I remember watching it hundreds of times, I had the soundtrack, I played the soundtrack yesterday, driving home from work. But I think it was too young to have a crush. I go to a Candace Cameron was my first crush. And Tatiana Ali, those are the two that I remember. So maybe that's a little bit later, but I love Greece that I love to live you do, John. So you were too Brady bunch wasn't in your Wheelhouse when you were a kid or was it? I watched it, but again, I think too young to have a crush. The first crush I ever remember was Candace Cameron, and a 100% from full House. And then like I said, from fresh prince tatyana, I'll leave those in the first two that I remember like being in love with a young kid or whatever. The other one's like, I watch, but I was probably too young for that. Someone had a great tweet after they said, said, passing of Olivia Newton-John just 73 about when at the end of Greece, when she ends up in the leather outfit in the curly hair, tell me about its thud.

"Welcome back letitia. Hi, sha thank you. And also joining us is JC Howard. A producer of NPR's how I built this. Welcome back to you too, JC. Hello, hello. Quick note, we had some tactical difficulties during this recording, so please excuse the audio quality for this episode. Now, the gist of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air for the maybe 5 people who don't know this is Will Smith plays Will Smith, who was born and raised in west Philadelphia. He gets in one little fight on the playground with a couple of no good guys and his mom sends him to live in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles with his rich auntie Vivian and uncle Phil, played by Janet Hubert and James Avery. Now aunt viv and uncle Phil have three children of their own. Tatiana Ali plays Ashley, who's the youngest and innocent one. Karen Parsons plays Hilary the oldest in a spoiled valley girl. And Alfonso Ribeiro plays carleton, a prep school nerd who idolized Bryant gumbel. There's also Jeffrey, their cool and collected black British butler, played by Joseph marcell. And of course, there's the other aunt viv played by Daphne Maxwell Reid, Reed replaced Hubert for seasons four through 6 after hebert and the show's producers couldn't come to an agreement on her contract. The show was created by Andy and Susan borowitz and it ran for 6 seasons after its premiere in 1990. It's been rebooted as an hour long, modern day drama called Bel Air. We'll be talking about that new iteration in an upcoming episode, but today is all about the original. So letitia, let's start with you. What is your relationship with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actually went up there before I was even born. And actually before I was in the pot, sorry. Well, I'm glad we have multiple generations. I've seen every single episode at least four or 5 times. I watched the reruns on. Nick and knight, TBS. I can recall many of the jokes like visually line delivery, facial expressions. It's all in print and on my brain. I grew up in white suburbia and my mom wasn't around a lot, so this was like my second family. So I'm very comfortable with these characters. I'm very fond of them. The show is just very endearing to me. I'm very protective of it. For some reason I'm now realizing. It's just very sweet. Yeah, thanks for making both me and JC feel free to follow me. It's okay. It's all right. This is what happens. Time passes, whatever. We'll have to more and more as the years go by. That's right. Yeah, for sure. JC, how about you? Yeah, I mean, I did watch it, as it was coming out. I woke up to that. But I also, you know, in preparation for this, went back and rewatched a lot of it. Honestly, more than I was planning. I was planning to just go back and rewatch a couple episodes just to refresh it in my mind. And it turned into like a binge watch session of watching like many, many episodes. These are Pringles. You can't stop them just watch. Oh, you can not stop. Once you pop, that's it. And the first thing that struck me when I was revisiting the show is just how cool Will Smith's character is. I don't know if it's the confidence or what it is, but when I went back and I started with the first episode and I did like a smattering of episodes from across the seasons. But will is somehow both relatable and cooler than I could ever hope to be even now. When the show came out, I think I was like two years old. So I was alive. Letitia, so there's that. The thing is even now, 30 years later, I'm still just like, this guy is dope. Like, this guy is like super cool. I wish I could be him. And also the house is super dope, which along with letitia is making me feel old because I'm now looking at the house and thinking like, wow, that's a good spice rack. It's not perfect 'cause it was the 90s and there's always gonna be problematic moments when you are talking about things from the 90s, but 80% of the jokes still hit to me. Yeah. I feel like the show has this energy that I don't, I don't even remember it being there, but it has this like high octane almost feel, which is probably because I get to watch it without commercials now, but even still, it just works. And I feel like timeless media from the 90s is pretty rare. And you know, admittedly, because of the fashion, but you know, fresh prince, I feel like just still works. Yeah, it's definitely one of those shows that I was also rewatching a bunch of it. And there are certain episodes where I could probably just reenact the whole thing myself. But I was still laughing out loud at so many moments. And really, really appreciating just like all the chemistry that this cast had and how rare that is to find. Like you said, there are a lot of things that data, especially even a lot of the celebrities that date it. Sometimes people who show up and I'm like, I don't know who that is. I don't remember. But I really think that this show, what makes it so special in some ways is obviously of the charisma of Will Smith. You know, we have this new iteration of fresh prince. And I think what a lot of people are pointing out is that the fresh prince was always kind of, I wouldn't say woke, but they were tackling a bunch of different issues in very comedic ways. And they don't all hold up or sometimes it was kind of done in a neat and tidy way. You got 20 minutes. That's all you get, yeah. Obviously, this was also the era of the very special episode. So like every sitcom was tackling things like family matters, all these other. But I think what makes this different is that it wasn't Gauzy and kind of like gooey in that way. There was always sort of an undercut that happened, even when we were having these deep moments, whether it is, will and Carlton being pulled over and Carlton suddenly learning what racial profiling is. Or even there's a great moment where at one point they go to court in jazz is one of the who's played by DJ jazzy Jeff. Obviously, is on the stand. You can put your hands down, jazz. I'm putting my hands down now. Because this is an era of the LA riots of Rodney King. So knowing that the way in which it does these things so with that biting humor, I think, is what makes it work still today. Yes. Are there any moments in particular that stand out for you when it came to the very special topical moments? You know, I was rewatching, obviously. And I came across the poetry episode where will join suppose a classic and a baby. Cannons to the right. Jeffrey in the dusty and the apples. It was so funny. But I didn't remember it being a very after school special episode until the end. And then it does that thing where will is like, if you want to learn more about poetry. If you'd like to learn more about poetry, you can reach us at psych, we just kidding, good night, y'all. And it's so funny. It's like, that's exactly what it is. Like, yes, you're telling us something, you're showing us a meeting of poetry, connecting with your family, always different things. It's just so well done. I'm actually like a shocked and amazed and inspired by how well it just blends all the different things that's trying to do so well. Yeah, I would agree. I went to lists and said, you know, what are some of the best fresh prince episodes kind of crowdsourcing this idea? Some of the serious ones make those lists a lot. And you know, obviously the show is a lot of fun. And then it deals with poignant moments and playing it kind of matters like, you know, I grew up kind of without my dad around, right? So then there's that episode with will, where his dad comes around and like he has this kind of this moment, like he has this moment with uncle Phil and it's very serious, right? But one of the things that I love about the show is that the jokes don't really stop, right? Like even in those serious moments, especially the one where we'll get shot and like Carlton is, you know, he's really struggling with this having happened to them. And will is like cracking jokes all throughout, which is part of the tension of the episode. Carlton, oh man,.

"It's spring 2018. Megan hooper flips to a clean page in her legal pad as she sits on the couch in her office. At lifetime headquarters in New York City. Next to her, another executive sits with her own pad. Hooper smiles at her colleague. Are you ready for the next one? Her colleague nods. In her late 30s hooper is the senior vice president of original movies at lifetime. She oversees the development and production of all of the network's movies. And right now, that means marathon days of hearing pitches for Christmas movies to air in this year's it's a wonderful lifetime. Last year, lifetime produced 6 original movies, but this year, hooper and the other top executives are shooting to premiere 14 films. That means hearing hundreds of pitches to find the best ones. Hooper picks up her phone and buzzes her assistant. We're ready. You can send him in. Cooper's assistant leads in a middle aged man in a baggy cardigan with messy hair and a 5 o'clock shadow. Sweat, beads on his forehead, even though the building is kept at a cool 68°. Hi, thanks so much for having me in today. If it's okay, I'd love to just jump right in. Hooper motions formed to begin. Please. Okay, so this is elf meets mystic pizza. We're in Caribou Maine, the snowiest place in the continental United States, and it's famous for its annual snow festival. Thanks no man building contests. A competitive snowball fights, stall, selling knitwear in elaborate snow forts. The entire town revolves around this festival. And as soon as it's over, they're planning the next year's. But this year, there's no snow. Hoover places her legal pad on the couch next to her and leans forward. I'm gonna stop you right there. Snow is non negotiable. Anytime our leads are outside, we want snow on the ground. Beautiful, pristine snow that never turns to sit covered slush and never needs plowing. It's an essential part of the aesthetic. The writer's face falls. Oh, okay. I was just trying to mix it up a little bit. You know, go for a fresh take on these films. I thought it would be a way to help you guys stand out from hallmark. I thought that was the goal. Hooper shakes her head. After graduating from northwestern university, she steadily worked her way up the executive ranks, starting at a small independent television production company, before going on to USA Network and finally lifetime. She didn't get where she is by ignoring her gut. And her gut says, the audience tunes in for the formula. We do want to stand out from hallmark, but breaking what's working is not the way. Well, thank you for the opportunity. Hooper watches as the writers slings his messenger bag over his shoulder. She taps her pen on her pad of paper, thinking. When the writer leaves, hooper turns to her colleague. He's not wrong. If our strategy is going to work, we do need to distinguish ourselves. Obviously, emitting snow is not the way. But I think there's a path forward that leans into what we're already doing well. What did you have in mind? We already have more leads of color than hallmark, which honestly isn't saying much. But what if we really committed to being the destination for audiences who don't live in lily white America? The executive nods. That makes sense, but I'm hearing from our casting directors that hallmark is looking for black leads. They signed Christina milian, Tatiana Ali and Tia mori hardrict. Every single one of them has been in movies for us. Hallmark's moving in on our turf. Okay, let's up the ante. About a third of our movies feature diverse leads. Let's go for even more people of color and lead roles. And let's get a true star. One with undeniable star power in at least one of our movies. Someone who goes beyond nostalgia casting. The executive rights office down. Got it. I'll work with casting to drop some names. Hooper picks up the phone and calls for the next rider to come in. When lifetime announces its slate for the 2018 it's a wonderful lifetime. 5 of their 14 movies star leads of color, with Tony Braxton headlining every day is Christmas. But lifetime isn't the only company using casting to make its mark. It's 2018. A production executive paces his office as he talks on the phone at Netflix headquarters in Los Angeles. Okay. As the executive talks, a colleague watches, eager to know what's being said, on the other end of the phone. The executive hangs up. His face stony for a moment, completely unreadable. His colleague leans forward, his eyebrows raised waiting for the executive to tell him what happened. Finally, the executive breaks into a smile. We got him. His colleague pumps his fist. Kurt Russell is Santa Claus. That is a coupe. I wish I could be a fly on the wall in hallmark and lifetime's offices when they find out. They make Christmas movies. We're making Christmas films. While they're squabbling over the domestic market, we're going to make Netflix a global Christmas destination with bankable international stars and elevated programming. Yeah, we are. But hallmark has its own idea about how to hold on to its crown. Do you remember my sister Tina? Hey. Hey. It's 2018. A crown media headquarters in Los Angeles. Bill Abbott is meeting with Michelle vickery. Hallmark's executive vice president of programming and network publicity. Up as a Hellenistic a Christmas movie plays low in the background on the TV in the corner. Yeah, do you know that? How could I not? I mean, that's huge Abbott shakes his head, pulling his attention away from it. I know I've known you for years, but I still can't believe you have these on all day. Vickery shrugs. How do you think I'm overseeing 37 of them this year? I love these movies. Besides, it puts me in the mind of our viewers. I still can't believe we're making 37 movies. I have to remember when we thought ten might be too much. We were so young and innocent. All right. Let's get back to the task at hand. How do you solve a problem like lifetime? And Netflix. Right. We made a real effort on the diversity front with four movies starring women of color this year. That's great and I'm sure we'll pick up some press for that, but that's not enough. You seem worried. Lifetime will have more movies featuring diverse leads, and they're making more movies 14 this year. Netflix has the money for serious star power. So what can we do to keep our lead? Vickery runs a hand through her long hair. I still think it all comes back to our brand. We don't just air movies. We are an entire experience. Unlike lifetime and Netflix, we have physical stores. People have gotten hallmark carts in good times and bad. They have these physical experiences that bring up emotions. Our movies and our channel are just another extension of that. Abbot nods. Yeah, you're right. It's not just about the movies. Sure, people tune into our premiere movies, but they leave us on to help create a festive atmosphere in their house. We should increase the graphics and music budget for the interstitials. Every frame needs to be the coziest, most hallmark Y frame possible. The whole channel should be an experience, a destination, we're not just an algorithm or a channel that suddenly changes gears from ripped from the headlines movies to Christmas ones every October. We are a home. Absolutely. We can cast a warm comfort and glow into the house and emotional.

"Now. I know that you do. We do we know that you do a of work for with marchforbabies? Can you tell us a little bit about marchforbabies and your work that you do with them I started working with the march of dimes when I was very young and I used to visit a Nikki's and stuff and many years ago when I was doing fresh prince. My mom really liked the march of dimes always supported them, and so you know when they came to us she she was like this is a good deal. Good 'cause I had amazing experiences Now again, I'm working with them on the celebrity advocate council. Everything changed once. On and I joined that council right before covid started So it's become. been involved in Webinars and you know I tried to get information out there I. The thing that I've become really interested in because of actually my first experience which wasn't. The best. To say the least I ended up having an emergency C. section. Things were done at the hospital that were you know when I when I talk to people now and I talked to experts as I've become more interested in in this. Maternal health care. If like their eyes go wide, their mouths are like that's not I've never heard that I've never heard of that. But all these people like putting their forearms in my belly like. Just was really crazy. It was really crazy and at a hospital you'd. Was it like affiliated at was just because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time or you think it was like a, it's a hospital that has a very, very high like extraordinarily high C. section rate. And a you know a good the nurses were great. It's a well, it's a great a good, very good hospital, excellent hospital but. Their maternity ward, they're they're known for. C.. Sections it's actually a nickname that they're giving amongst the maternal health community that I didn't know at the time but I, started to do my own kind of legwork and. Going to birth summits and learning about the black maternal health crisis You know this this is the one-sixth that people talk about all the time. But black women are three times more likely to die in childbirth than white women and we have a maternal health care crisis in the United States period because and it really is like the more you talk about in the more you get into the wise. It really is because we have a structurally like Patriarch Patriarchal System a structurally racist system and it has to biases it has to do with so many things. So so I started really getting into that work in. March of dimes asked me to be on their council just to help get information out there. Now with Cova, you don't really getting people I have. One friend just gave birth but I've had three pregnant friends. One is about to give birth in. Who are pregnant and caring for themselves and being cared for during all of this, and there's a lot to like. There's there's a lot to think about in and fight for Fisher. I'm learning a lot more now I I. was really taken aback by adding we've heard how much we lag behind other western and and modern societies that are that are take really good care of women in childbirth and how much the US has really lagged behind in many ways both in terms of like honoring the mother's wishes and in terms of really like protecting. The protecting the integrity of like exploring those options as opposed to going to the most expeditious potentially like you know the the the least room for unpredictable outcomes but also a predictable outcome that you don't necessarily want. Those interventions lead to a lot of problems that wouldn't probably happened if those interventions weren't they're totally. So I'm so curious because you I'm so sorry that you went through a, you know a a difficult first birth because I I know that also a never having been through any birth before you probably at some point thought like did I do something wrong like with is supposed to have said this at the other like You know they're and and I'm I'm birth is a beautiful experience and it also even its best cases is a holy like body opening wrenching experience too. So you clearly have your beautiful sat on the other side and that's really that's really the most important piece.
