3 Rounds with Betsy Beers
Shondaland is place filled with drama, love, secrets, lies, heartbreak, hope, and life-threatening circumstances. Its residents are gladiators, politicians, interns, doctors, lawyers, and even presidents. While this "land" is obviously presided over by a woman named "Shonda" the train is kept on the tracks by a woman named Betsy. Join Ms. Beers for a live edition of EW's series "Three Rounds with...," as we pour the Tito's Handmade Vodka for Annalise, toast some tequila for Meredith Grey, and have a glass of red for Olivia Pope, while Betsy spills (hopefully not her drink) to EW's editor-in-chief about her role in Shondaland, how it began and evolved, and where TGIT's leading ladies might be headed.

Listen as these creators, executive producers, and casting directors discuss this new process, how it both can be freeing and hindering, and the way it is changing the television industry.
