"News. Michelle Martin the women's World Cup is underway in France. And as usual in the early rounds, the underdogs have been getting dispatched by the powerhouses pretty handily, but Tuesday's match between the US in Thailand took this to a new level. The US crush the ponies thirteen to zero for some. This was a cause for celebration and vindication as the US women have been pressing their governing body for better pay and conditions. But for some commentators, the lopsided result raises questions about sportsmanship, and even ethics should the Americans have kept running up the score against the vastly outmatched ties to settle this we've called, Sean Klein lecturer in ethics and philosophy at Arizona State University. And he's with us now from K J Z in Arizona. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me, and professor client. I want to mention that you teach a class, in sports ethics class that has a whole section of the syllabus devoted to the ethics of running up the score. So you have thought a lot about this. You watch this game. Did it strike you as? Ethical in the moment. I thought it was exciting. I thought it was ridiculous. I kept running to my son and saying they scored again, they scored again, I didn't experience it as lacking in sportsmanship. And when you say, ridiculous, you don't mean that in a bad way you made like ridiculous like, wow, this is ridiculous. Yeah. I mean this is crazy crazy. This is I've never seen this. This is Michael Jordan leaping over all the defenders in basketball. This is Serena Williams, demolishing, her competition in tennis match. It was a sporting moment that you just don't see. And so it would that that part was exciting to see that historical aspect of it. And so what do you make of the way this has kept bubbling up all week? I just want to know that they the US coach Jill else said that, if this had been a men's soccer match these questions would never have come up. I don't know any way to test that theory. But, but why do you think this has bubbled up like that has all week? I mean, I think she's, she's right to degree. I do. Think that the fact that this is the women's World Cup is playing a role of why it's getting attention. It's getting at the same time these questions, do get raised in other sports. I mean, I can't recall it being raised in, in men's soccer certainly from the US perspective has never gotten close to having this kind of match at least on the winning side. But in other sports, whether it's the NFL men's college football baseball flipping the bad after homerun celebrations. This question does get raised against men's teams you did mention the celebrations, that so that is another sportsmanship question that has come out of this match. But the way that US women celebrated their goals, you know, jumping in each other's arms or rolling on the field. I mean that's pretty standard stuff. But, but I do wonder if you think that the fact that the team kept celebrating when they kept scoring do you think that's something that's pushing people's buttons? I do think that, that's the driving force for a lot of the discussions. But what the players were doing was coming together in some of the cases so you take Mallory Pugh. This was her first World Cup goal. Yes, it was the eleventh goal that the US scored, but this is her first goal. So of course, she's going to celebrate. And of course, the team around her is going to come to her and celebrate that shows great team chemistry that, that they're all so happy for Pugh success achievement in a chief, that she's been dreaming about since she was six years old. So I think that, that, that ability to dream, and then celebrate when you have achieved your dream, I think is one of the magical things of sport. And I would hate to see us not celebrate that I wanted to ask you for the people who think it's just not a good look. Or maybe it just makes it US look bad. Or like bullies. Why do you think that it was important from, from the standpoint of the US women for them to play hard and score as many goals as they could? Like what point do you think they were making one is just internal to the to the team that they can play well together in the context of a game in front of fans on international TV I also think that's a message to the rest of the field that the US is here to defend their championship and they're going to play hard. I think it's also import. In terms of telling women that it's okay to be who they are. It's okay to be great. It's okay to pursue greatness and to achieve greatness, and it's okay to, to celebrate your chief mitts and not to run from them and not to hide from it, and I think that's an important message. Well, I do want to note the USA place. She lay tomorrow Sunday care to handicapper for us. I think that the US will win. I don't think we'll get into the double digits again. I'll say that it may be more like a let's say six to one score. Let's go with that. Okay. He hosts the podcasts called the sports ethicists, where questions like this often come up, Sean, thanks so much for talking to thanks for having me finally today, late night television. It's something of an American institution, those personalities delivering monologues with Chris one liners and snarky takes on the week's news as a celebrity interviews. Maybe funny skits, they become so much a part of people's lives. They're like a combination of best friend, news anchor and therapist for many people. But every so often when a show gets cancelled or there's a public squabble over time slot. The audience gets a glimpse of what often lurks behind the scenes demanding and unreasonable bosses long hours, cliqueish co workers and hardly any racial or gender diversity, not really the stuff of jokes. But writer and actor Mindy Kaeling somehow, manages to find humor and redemption in late night comedy. Movie late night, stars Oscar-winner, Emma Thompson as talk show host, Catherine Newbury, a once popular comedian, who broke through the glass. Feeling of late night comedy, only to pull up the ladder behind her and settle into a stale predictable show fed by a crew of all male, all white writers, that is until Molly Patel, played by indicating joins the writer's room as a diversity higher and starts to shake things up. Mindy Kaeling Emma Thompson, joined me recently from London to talk about their film, and I started our conversation by asking Kaeling why she created a strong female lead for a film, set in late night, which in real life is dominated by men. I've wanted to write about late night so much because I'm one of those comedy nerds that was obsessed with the growing up. I read every book about it. I was an intern at late night with Brian before I moved over into the half hour world to work on the office, but that environment is very famous, even among comedy writers, because it is hyper masculine, hyper competitive very ruthless, and I was not interested really in writing a movie with a an older white male lead. Which is what we see and a lot of these shows and I had always wanted to write something for at Thomson. I thought you know, this actually could be a perfect vehicle for her. Can you just wanna work with her, or you just thought if the kind of classic late night, host were a woman instead of the guy in a suit, it would be Thompson? What made you think of her when I say, nice things about Emma and she hates it so much, and she wants to curl up and die because she's English, and she also can pathologically not take a compliment. But here's why Emma, is my favorite living actor. And I've loved her since I was in eleven year old girl, and I saw her in much ado, about nothing. So for me, it many actors can do dramatic roles, and we give them awards to do it. But so few can be funny and you drama, and it is it is in my opinion, much harder to comedy than it is to do drama, and Emma can do both. And she was just inspiring to me for such a long time, and I wanted to write for her, and I said, I know it science fiction further to be a female late night, talk show, host in even more. So for her to have the job for thirty years, but it was the only thing that made sense for me to write 'em. What about this role appeal to you? Oh, well, everything I met Mindy, and she told me, she'd written something fool me, and I thought, maybe it's going to be about an elderly. In doses. Because it generally is when people write things for me and I read it in full house later Ryan my agent and said, please tell the I couldn't be more thrilled that I will start tomorrow if that's possible. There's so many issues to unpack in this film. I don't wanna make people think it is a documentary 'cause it's not. And it is very funny, but there's a lot in there. The racism, sexism ageism, as we are speaking now this week late night, lost another female host busy tonight, which was hosted by busy Phillips, it was cancelled which leaves one woman late night was just Samantha b who's talked a little bit about her struggle. And I was wondering, is there something about that role that just makes it hard place for women to be what, what's your, what's your take on that? I think that there is something a little bit much. Oh, about the late night, slot, a little bit kind of nineteen seventy Saturday night. Live everybody's. Night. Taking coke Joan believe she's announcing that women funny, and it's, it's tough old world for, for a woman, and Catherine is the person to manage to survive it, and it's called star, and she said to make sacrifices, and she's probably had to build a reasonably happen carapace, but she's also bright enough to recognize that she's got to change. And she's got to listen, and that's the story say wonderful about this story is so often when you female often movies, she doesn't change. She's just the eagles. Stepmother, the evil boss of cold, Ouragan, archetype person. But what Mendis done is creating actual passan living breathing person who the beginning is does find it difficult to accept actually the fact that she's no longer successful as she thought she was. She suddenly realizes that she's been complacent and because she is genuinely committed to being excellent. She decides she's going to change and it takes a while. But finally Mendis does breakthrough to they create working relationships, the so fun to watch developing, and doesn't tunnel soft and fluffy at the end just become something very real very believable in very uplifting, Catherine's character does not care what people's reactions are to her honest, answers, and honest, desires, if she sees any kind of inefficiency she calls it out without anger, and it's, it's interesting. We've been doing press for the movie, and everyone has been using words like bitchy in cold and it's not that she's bitching, she's just dispassionately expressing what she needs. Yeah. Do you know what it feels like when you do that, especially if you'll pathologically nice, you want to be kind to everybody, like me, as I experienced playing Catherine is a kind of five week holiday from being, you know, having to look after everybody I was just so it was so bliss. Awful just tiny round to someone who was boring me and say, I'm not interested shot off and then apologizing to the rest of the week about it. I never used those words, bitchy and coal. In fact, I would not and I wonder whether the whole point of the movie. Well, the movies funny, that's the point of the movie, but part of it is the whole question of how women get to express authority. That's one of the points and what it means when they do. So what does it say that the fact that people are using those words to you, when that's the whole point is to redefine, what it means to express authority, if people are using those words to you, what does it say a man is entitled to have a private life, but because Emma's character is very private about her husband and her life, the certain people who've talked to us about the movies that was cold. But when I was writing, I didn't, particularly think that analysts cold, I thought that the character was crisp and to the point, and direct, and those are qualities that are so positive in male Lee. Leaders, but in a woman, turn certain people off people are still uncomfortable with the with the possibility that a woman would be directed her in her communication, with her employees that people thought she was cold. And I'm very happy. You're planning that because I don't think it is at all. No finds it both bracing undug, lifting and motivational as well. I think that women who've come out with these points have all been women. It's just that thing is having ingested patriarchal these this. Not being able somehow to be released by saying, Catherine. Whereas men, Catherine go. Yeah. That makes total sense. This the reason why at the end of the movie when on the conditions for my characters willing to stay there. She doesn't say you have to be nice everyone. She says no more withering looks and hire people who don't look like they normally do. She doesn't say, I need you to ask everyone about their day. We are in a moment in the United States, where this whole question like, what diversity means is something that is a part of the conversation, and your movie has has something to say about diversity. I'd like to ask you, how would you describe what it has to say about why it matters? Sure. So we talk a lot in the movie about the fact that Molly is a diversity higher. And I can't think of another movie or TV show that really talks about this head on with, that term the true than matters. The term has really pejorative connotation, I was diversity higher..

But when I was writing it, I didn't particularly think that I'm was cold.

Keep probably would have quit and been or read fired or something. But the movie like doesn't even bother telling you, because it just like sodas and care about him at that point. And I kind of enjoyed the like the cruelty with which he was just don't don't, don't give a shit about that guy. So. Yeah. But the movie does seem to care about the relationship between the Reed, Scott character and Mindy killings character, which, as we talked about, in our culture, gabfest live show, and I found a tiny bit disappointing not that I don't like that Tom character. He's fine. And I guess Molly Patel deserves happiness as do we all. But it didn't really seem necessary for me to wrap up the movie with the implication, that the two of them are going on having this happy workplace romance, which is what the impression we get in that very less seen fast forwarding a year ahead of, of. Molly Patel's rehiring and seeing her co running the monologue. Essentially with Tom, and I didn't get a chance to say this one, we recorded our culture gap at segments. But I thought it was probably a little bit important in terms. Of like when we first meet all of these characters like everyone has to be a monk, who has devoted to running show and it's this like weird little nod toward work. Life balance where many killings character is able to, like, quote, unquote habit, all. And so I don't know if like that's emotionally satisfying, but I think it's dramatically cohesive. Yeah. I guess. I guess, in the sense that workplace would have become a little bit less toxic in, in the interim. Yeah. Because by the end of the movie there's a pan across the writer's room and you see that there's a lot more women in a lot more people of color than there initially was. And the implication is that Molly has come in at because she has been able to work her way through a position of power. She is able to make the kinds of higher that she thinks the show should have had all along ROY them. There is something about the phobic a little sort of, like Hollywood so congratulatory about it like oh, we've fixed the problem now. But that is like, especially in, in TV where the structure is kind of more like a regular job like you go to an office at a certain time every day. And you if you're shook it's picked up. You do it. You know month for months at a time for years on end and there has been a big change lean brush, McKenna, from crazy a score from the writer of the dead, the product talked about it in the podcast. She did. Julie Turner here where she just decided to she wrote movies, in ninety because she couldn't she was having kids. And like I can't have TV job and like and raise a family like those things are just fundamentally incompatible, which is why she ended up writing screenplays. And then when she started to run shows on her own, she was just like, okay. Well, we, you know, we like finish us at time every day. And like, I'm going to, you know still pick up my kids from school and stuff like that. And it was just like this. We don't have to have the writers remodel where everybody like comes in and plays darts. And like looks at you puts for five hours. And then we finally start writing and finish up at that sounds like my writing process. Yes. Yeah, but it'd be. But it's not assume that like our default writer is like a white man in like an unattached white man in his twenties, who has nothing better to do. Let's make this like a like a sustainable profession for people who have families and, and, and less sort of not like family trust funds and. Utopic ending. But it's it's a Rome come awesome. Italy. We want to see all these people end up. Okay. And it's better to have a utopic ending that as you say, is about systemic change than a utopic ending. That's just like she got the guy and then we need Nacho, who's the director and work on his work on transparent and a bunch of other TV shows has also been like. Part of that change as well. So I mean this movie very much kind of comes out of that as well, if they're sort of like a female show runner ethos that too, because I know that in. Shonda rhimes spoke, the year up. Yes, she talks about how she just decided at a certain point that Oliver once she got kids that Oliver shows the writer's room with Chuck down at, like five o'clock or six o'clock, or whatever the time was, I think she said something along the lines of like there's no such thing, as, like a crazy writing emergency, and satellite. Whatever has to wait, like, really does have to wait until the next day. I guess if you're Sean, the rhymes, you can set those roles, but I'm not many other people Archer of you gotta put these ideas out there for other people to pick them up on, right. Yeah. Someone you know, someone like Sean res-, obviously, has the power to do that. Not only for the shows that she runs, but the shows that she produces, and then that sets and the other people say, well. L look at home. You know, shonda rhimes runs her room like let's run ours like that. Right. She turned out some pretty good shows using those, those hours. I don't know if you guys would agree with me on this. But I sort of feel like the, the, the driving engine of this movie really is the Thompson character. Can you imagine anyone else in the role of this, this Catharine Newbury late night host? I'm certainly not after having seen her play it. I mean, it's I mean it's not as I mentioned, this movie, kind of God. I was a I think the biggest sale, it's on answers here is like a twelve million dollars sale, and that was, you know, normally people start talking about awards at Sundance. This was not that kind of year. This is just like people are just buying, like popular hits. But I feel like I would love to see that that role in sort of supporting actor consideration at the end of the year because it is just like a magnificent performance. Limited love. Emma Thompson, a great deal in a in a great many capacities as an actor and writer and a bit. It's just it brings so much of the force of her personality and her. Through in this. It's just it's she really puts a kind of indelible Mark on this role. Yeah. And aside, if a personality that you don't often see because there's something about Emma Thompson, and most of her roles that just radiates this kind of, well, sort of sensible practicality, which he does radiate here. But also this just kind of open, warmth, and goodness. And so two partic- her play someone who, is, you know, pretty emotionally shutdown cynical is a is just a trip. I think she really nails. It takes note, here is that mendicant headset shoe broach. The role specifically for Emma talk, then I don't think that she knew Thompson, the woods I not. But that was sort of like the picture. She had in mind. He other thing I really like about this movie, even though it also not like ring true for me in real life is I love a Thompsons wardrobe in this movie she sort of the only character who gets a half, like really outlandish wardrobe and but like. It such a it's like it's like remaking of Thomson as a fashion point where she has his leg very like she has like a platinum swoop. And I am to basically is almost never seen in address. She's constantly in pants on blazers Zych very bright sneakers, and I feel like it's probably house. She dropped with a low of time like if you see her in, like red carpet photos, and so, to give her decide glam makeover like within an actual movie with, like a movie wardrobe budget. Like that was really fun to see. There was actually sort of minor flap regionally owned on the Twitter about Emma Thompson. Dame, Emma Thompson showing up to some kind of Royal event in Britain, wearing sneakers, it was her knighthood was when she was made Dame, Emma Thompson. She was like, well, they're designers. But people are like, oh, how dare she? And she's like, yeah. This is this is what I wear. I mean, let's just admit we want her to win the Oscar just so we can see what she wears what.

What's next Sean men in black international K, based on comic book lest we forget. Longtime. Yes. Okay. Okay. Serious question has there ever been a men in black movie that wasn't a vaguely disappointing, though? The first one I one, the first one was great for even the first one. Okay. Now, it's like okay, we've set it up. Now, the next one will be great. And then the next one wasn't great. Oh, you're talking about sequels. Yeah, we'll know. But even the first one was very I think you're outnumbered here. It had a great performance by what's his name. No, I agree. It was great. Shillue but all the peoples have been the sepals have been disciplined and, and this one, and this one is no different than which is, which is which is inexcusable. You've got all the toys here to play with to make a fun movie script apparel. And apparently, that's low. That's part of an and. Yeah, it, it it's, it's very scattershot again script. And you've got you've got the great promise where you have this young woman who basically tracked down the. Because she's been assessed with since she was a little girl and her parents, get flashy thing. And, and she, she finds them and gets in and says, okay, I wanted I have no life. I want in and they signed her up probationary. She she. She flatters agent. Oh, Emma Thompson sufficiently that. She gives to try out run under the name agent, m and she sent to London where something is brewing. Okay. And gets partnered up with agent h play. But Chris Hemsworth. So there, you've got the Valkyrie Thor. Yeah. Dream dream matchup once again. And under under the under the watchful eye of the of the head of the bureau, high tea late played by Liam Neeson, and that's and that's about as meth about a smart as the jokes. Get and really, that's sort of the problem. Trying to trying to mix the, the action in the comedy. You've got an action director, Gary gray who did the fate of the furious. Straight outta Compton and heated Friday's. Oh, you know, he's done comedy like twenty five years ago. Oh. And yeah, the it, it, it, never it never meshes never melt, which is too bad. Because you, you know you would love to see. Go at it again because they were great in tour. Two and a half two and a half men in black international. All right. Let's go to the dead. Don't die Jim Jarmusch, who most people would know more from the time he showed up on the Simpsons in, in the episode side at Sundance. You know, Matt maverick. Indie director very odd sensibility. He he does his own B-movie. Okay. Spree. It's a pretty straightforward zombie. Movie small town. You've got a three person police force the, the chief is Bill Murray and his two officers, Adam driver enclosed seventy like all this. And you've got, you know, Iggy pop zombie and thorough. Cain. Karaoke Kane is his ambi-, lots of. See lots of these and it, well it is it is pretty funny. It is very they're not fast on these. Because the jar, this Jarmusch movie, they're sort of slow zombies, they'd be removed. What does reminded me of is? Did you ever see the Saturday Night Live spoof, where they'd had a Wes Anderson horror movie. Yeah. I get it. This is this is kind of like that. There is one sort of great meta twist midway through. Oh, I forgot to mention the, the medical examiner is Tilda Swinton, who is Scottish and who is Scottish and is skilled in Japanese sort scale assorted play. Okay. So which comes in which of course, comes in handy when zombie start attacking so. It's all an and the Jarvis world. So this is a universe where the Wu Tang clan runs the parcel service course whoop. ES. And risen and risen and risi's delivering the packages course. So it's sort of Jarmusch world. And if if you're into that, great actual horror fans are going to go. But if you're into dramas wavelength, it's pretty cool. So three stars you so far being more kind than mosly possibly. But it's I is it for you? Any move. I'm sorry. Bill. Murray Bill Murray fighting zombies. You gotta love that. Well, then let's go to late night. I'm curious about this. This is this is. I love this movie. This is basically tearing down the patriarchy, and laughing all the way. You've ever Thompson a as a. Long running TV late night, TV host. Sort of. Sort of Letterman in heels, that's sort of that. And her show has been sort of a snooze for many years to the point where the new network executive has said this is your last season. And we're gonna replace you some of the guy. So with some other guy with a guy with a guy like Barunholtz this specifically as, as sort of like frat boy, comedian. Yeah. And so she's been warned about this. She goes into her writer's room, which is all white guys who went to Harvard and Yale. As most writers rooms have been over the years. And tells tells her head writer get a woman, and she says, what a gay guy do, and she says, no. So the first woman who shows up apply for the job is Mindy Kayla character. Molly Patel, who is this is her dream of life, but she, she's very inexperienced her previous experiences, telling jokes over the PA at a chemical plant where she worked and. They need a woman. She's a woman, there's the higher, and she, she, she tries to, to grey shade yourself with the staff who hates her guts because she's just there. And it is sort of about how the mini candidate character sort of tries to work to help, upgrade and update, the Emma Thompson's stick for a new audience for their for modern audiences. What I love about indicating wrote this, and what I love about it is how she very the first half of the movie is her story is, is the Kaelin character story. But there's a great pivot, where it turns into Emma Thompson story and images runs with it. She I mean we know she's great. Yeah. But she, but as with most people, and especially with women performance, you're only as good as them till you can get. And yeah, this one finally gives her great material and it's, it's wonderful. It's funny. It's sharp and it wraps its message in the comedy, the way you would be a dog a pill by wrapping and ham. You know. And it's wonderful 'em. You cannot say enough, great things about Emma Thompson. Three and a half stars. All right. Three and a half. Four late nights. Sounds good to me.

"I didn't say that. No. I mean, not in those words that you cited any of those words. By the way, Katherine has played by Oscar Oscar-winner, Emma Thompson, who to add, another layer of Medef, one Academy Award in nineteen Ninety-six for screenwriting. So there's that late night isn't flick theaters now. And in theaters everywhere, June fourteenth, and I'm very happy that many counting joining us by phone. Hi mindy. Hi, it's going, well, how long have you had the idea for this movie. Been working on the movie for about three and a half on four years. I guess I really do. Acting on my own show. And I've always wanted to write about my time coming into the business. And this is the best way to do it. You mentioned it took three and a half in wrinkle in time you were finishing up the Mindy project you were having a child caring for a child. When did you actually find the time to write the movie, I would I think, of my workweek as six days, and it can reach out date or Sunday. And so this is I work from home, which to me is like fun. And so, when my baby was sleeping, I would just use the time to sleeping, which is kind of a lot when you have three or four month old baby to just to work, and that's how that's how I did it when you were researching the film's, did you go out and visit writers rooms and, and when you were researching what were you looking for? What kind of details? I've always been fascinated. Talk show host because I've done research on this since I was a kid 'cause I was just obsessive and I think that the experience of watching a show is so full of joy and so fun that I was really surprised during that big of TV show from most of these shows not that way at all. And you have some of the biggest personalities on, on camera that can be very different offscreen, and that's come world in the late. And I wanted to kind of pull back on that, well, telling kind of how I got into the business when we meet, Catherine Newberry where is she in her life? Well, how does show for over twenty five years and is considered very smart, and very diet and, and really funny, but a little out of touch. She hates the media. She detests superhero movies, and she's a she's to be funny and a little bit more mean than funny and her readings are. One of the things that I interesting, there's a steam in the in the movie to me of, of complacency like the hiring pipeline. Is this way, so that we do it this way and the joke is structured this way? So we have to do it this way and a comment, your character makes is I wouldn't be here if I cared how things were done when you think about the business. You're in in the way change needs to happen. What do you think is the best way to fight this kind of complacency? Great question. I mean, the only thing that I was able to make it in the business as you said, was to do to go through routes that you don't traditionally see, you know, most comedy writers rooms at least forty percent people who are hired from the same college I had to come through by reading my own play and acting in my own playoff, because it was kind of the only way that I could get seen and writing my phone material for myself. And so much of that, I mean, these are the character I plan this is, is very different has a different background than me, but she pretty much takes her destiny into our own hands. And she actually gets the job through and say contest to, and so it to be an executive at a at a corporate office. So to me, I have never depended on other people to find employment for me. I, I tend to try to do it myself. It's so funny should mention that the play was been in mad about Ben Affleck. And Matt Damon. And this is a funny story. So I had a friend who I met you a long long time ago when you worked at John Edwards that show crossing over and this isn't there approaches isn't there and my friend. I remember when you left, he said, I just read the funniest goodbye Email from this woman, Mendy it was so hilarious. And it was very funny, and he said that, you know, she's a great writer and years later, we realized it was you that you would just. Oh. That's a nice story. You're like she's going to commit Veracruz linked, Ben Affleck in a in a weird off Broadway play. And now here this is so have you been just writing comedy, your whole life, pretty much six years old? I would my mom was a doctor and she's an OBGYN and she, I would go to her office after school that are doing after school program, and I would just sit in one of the rim of our office, the full body room where they drew blood, and then there is the damn room which I was leading to hurt like her puzzle room, and I would just sit there with a typewriter reader, right? And then women would come into their bloodstream, and if they were okay with a seven year old sitting there I could stay and so I tend our every day, every day for years of my life, just going there, and sitting there women, getting their blood drawn asking me questions. I have been writing comedy place to show, my mom between patients, my guess is Mindy Kaeling, we're talking about her new show, her new movie. Me late night, which is going to be in theaters everywhere on June fourteenth. So this, the, the character, you play, she's sort of wonderfully wise, but naive at the same time, and she's able to see all the flaws and all the issues with Catherine's late night show. Why is that? Why do you think she's able to come with the truth? I think it for one that also I based her a lot on the young female comedy writers that I have on the statue of my different shows, and what I've noticed and kind of one of the most enjoyable, but also, infuriating, qualities, I see in, like younger writers, and maybe this is like a millennial thing too, but I really love it also is there is the young women who are like unafraid, both respectful of their bosses that unafraid to save their opinions about things and that's what Molly is. You know, she doesn't realize that there's been times in these corporate environments is higher attitude or supposed to have two words things like you're brought in and you think you are equal to everyone else in the room, and so that can do the thing about thing. And so she's very blunt by character. But also very differential at the same time, and I was really fun to play when I was watching the film. I thought there was a little bit of like a little girl in there a little thing a little. Mary Tyler Moore to that sort of, like the Mary Tyler Moore Lou grant relationship because. When Lou grant says I hate spunk that Catherine knows that she needs Molly. But she's not necessarily sure she likes Molly. Do you think at the at the end this movie is as much about their relationship as it is about all the other big issue? You. Michael. You know, I think that because the movies about two women in the workplace who don't like when you see and TV until a lot you. It's tended. It's become kind of an issue oriented movie, but it's really just like a funny workplace calming. I came from I came from the office, which is a workplace comedy. I wrote twenty episodes of that show. And this is from that same, except that instead of Dwight true. And Michael Scott, you have Katherine Newbury, Molly Patel. And so that's, that's sort of where my roots are as a writer. That's anything I think is really funny to watch and grant Mary Tyler Moore. I mean that is such a compliment. I love that show and they're dynamically, so funny, but for sure the movie is, is really about mentorship and about their relationship. Did you write this part with Emma Thompson in mind? I mean I read on the internet, but not everything on the internet is true. This is true. I did write this movie with Emma Thompson in mind, I'd never met her. And I just started picturing if she likes to call it science fiction this. We don't have a late night, talk show host woman, and definitely not one that had the job for thirty years and sort of national treasure. So that was really fun for him at a place. I'm gonna do literally did not exist. And I just thought if there was going to be someone like that who could play that role. And you know, Emma's as best known in this country for playing roles that are period dramas, but she comes from comedy, and she's just funniest most whip smart quickest nimble comic minds that I know. So I just thought if there's anyone who's going to be able to do it. It'd be her. My guess is Mindy Kaeling, we're talking about her new film, late night, which she wrote produces and stars, and I am going to ask you questions a couple because the writing is, it's wicked, and it's like wickedly funny about this idea of quote, diversity, hires, for example, when you're first introduced your name is Molly the guy with Molly. Trying to give it sort of an Indian accent. It's flies by really, really fast, but it's just it's so on point, what did you want to expose about all these narratives in the workplace around quote unquote diversity hires? Well, it's just, you know, everyone, it's really touchy subject for a lot of people, but it's also very, very funny as usually touchy things are that makes people really sensitive. It's why people like the diversity day episode of the office because things are really true. But it makes people laugh and, and I think, as someone who's always had I was literally that rec- higher on the office that was came through diversity program and everyone knew it that was in the writer's room and I was so embarrassed of it for such a long time. And, and I felt was re sensitive to me. But that's the story of so many people get hired, particularly now and just because you come through that program is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it usually means that your employers are trying to do good into. I, I love those kinds of areas, I think topical and I think the best way of Pentagon, a message across through comedy. I don't wanna go to a movie to feel like. Preaching something to me. I I wanna go to be entertained. And then, you know, at the end of the movie you see that the writers looks very different than it did it the beginning. Like I kinda like that. The head of the network. The one who's going to give Katherine Uber. The boot is also a woman was that always in your plan or was that something that sort of developed over time? In writing I wanted to all these juicy powerful parts, and it just felt a little bit with a missed opportunity for me not to create those roles for women. Like so many of the people now that I see has studios are women, and I wanted to reflect kind of what, what I was seeing, and there, you there on the cover of the Hollywood reporter and a variety. And so that in itself was really choosy great part that I thought, yeah..

My neck and take my stool softener. As friends arrived. It was as if each had been world through the door by storm outside. They were so happy to be there. I watched from the couches, they swapped hugs of relief with my parents and flowed into my tiny living room, making chairs out of anything dad turned my cutting boards into tea trays and serve Persian. Tea and my shot glasses and Mason jars in for a moment. I forgot I'd had surgery my face puffed with pressure. And I let out a cackle the room went silent everyone watched as a trickle of blood dripped out the center stitch in stained, my bandage. I let my friends, the laughing for me. We never talked about Christ's church. We didn't need to it was in every inhale. It wasn't the first mess shooting. It wouldn't be the last so often tragedy is, what brings us together that it made me, appreciate the ritual of Joma all the more growing up. We went to mosque every Friday, whether enjoy sorrow grief or uncertainty. I think it's because of that tradition that I love performing live so much, even when it's just with a dozen friends in my living room, even when it runs me ragged, I love being there with the crowd. And now I might have a scarred. Remind me just how much is our newer. Bosch is a comedian and co host of the good Muslim, bad Muslim podcast. Her new show on behalf of all Muslims. A comedy special makes its the ethical premier at the Bravo theatre center in San Francisco on June twenty-first coming up Justin Chang, reviews. The new film late night. This is fresh air. This is fresh air, actress and comedian Mindy Kaeling has said in interviews that she started her entertainment career as a diversity higher writing for the NBC series, the office. She's parlayed some of that experience into her script for late night. The new movie set in the world of network television. She co stars along with Imata person who plays the longtime host of a late night, talk show film critic, Justin Chang, has this review the Hollywood. We see in the crowd pleasing showbiz satire. Late night is more progressive than the real thing in at least one respect. This one has a late night, talk show, hosted by a woman that host is a British born New Yorker named Kathryn Newbury, and she's played by Emma Thompson, giving one of her signature superb performances as a woman who's incapable of suffering fools. Gladly Catherine is brilliant, acerbic and proudly elitist. She has few friends or family except her. Loving ailing husband beautifully played by John Lithgow. She's built her reputation on excellence in has a shelf. Full of Emmy's to prove it, though, her twenty eight year old show has seen better days. Viewership has been slipping for a decade, probably because Catherine prefers to interview writers and intellectuals rather than movie stars and YouTube celebrities around the time she learns that her days on the show are numbered. Katherine decides it's time she diversified her staff. Her writing team consists entirely of white men, fueling rumors that she's one of those successful women who can't abide other successful women, and so she ends up hiring Molly Patel, played by Mindy Kaeling, who also wrote and produced the movie. Molly is a former efficiency expert at a Pennsylvania chemical plant with a passion for comedy, but not writing experience. Her irrepressible eager to please spirit. Almost immediately rubs Catherine at her. Other co workers the wrong way. In an early writer's room meeting. Molly gives a detailed report, laying up three areas where she thinks the show could improve overall unwillingness to do high-concept recurring that we have to physically leave the studio, those are the ones that can go viral executed. Well, the second is your total lack of presence of social media. You seem to have contempt for it, which feels ill advised, because most of your audience is watching on their funds, the third, I think people get very excited when you share your beliefs, so what you just about the Miss America pageant, that was awesome when you reveal those kind of strong opinions, it's when you really come alive as a performer as well intentioned. Advice gets a frosty reception. From catherine. So. What's the solution? Oh, I don't have one just to be clear. You don't have any new jobs. Okay. I've been doing this for nearly five years, and I know what was doesn't work. And if suddenly confident newcomer coming in criticizing shoving giving me her assessment of my comic Pasana without doing the whole book of presenting me with solutions this, this room is a shit. I am the captain anew belly on the right to be at all. I don't know how faithfully late night, reproduces the behind the scenes goings on at a late night, talk show. But it's probably about as accurate as the devil wears Prada was about life at a glossy fashion magazine which is to say accurate enough, despite some quick cameos by Seth Meyers and Bill Maher and a few references to pass late night ratings wars hosts, succession scandals. The movie is never, as rich or penetrating, send up as say, Larry Sanders show, but as with most office comedies, logistics matter, less than the quality of the banter, and the character, interplay and director Nisha, nutter pulls off that juggling act.

You always want more scenes between Mali, and Catherine to mismatched individuals who come to realize how much they need. Each other tailing wrote the script with Emma Thompson in mind.

The movie is also boldly confrontational about topics like casual workplace sexism and the push for inclusiveness in the entertainment industry. The other writers initially treat, Molly with sniggering contempt, even as they drowned in their own self pity. It's just so hard, being a white man, these days, they say.

It's caustic industry satire with it's more sentimental.
