Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Nell Scovell
The writer, producer, and director of some of the funniest shows on television provides a scathingly funny account of how pop culture gets made in her book, Just the Funny Parts.
With more than thirty years of experience as a writer, producer, and director, Nell Scovell knows how the entertainment industry works. She came to Hollywood as a bookish New Englander and worked her way up from a low-level writer for Bob Newhart to a major contributor to shows including The Simpsons, Late Night with David Letterman, Murphy Brown, and NCIS and on to creator of the series Sabrina the Teenage Witch. In 2009, Scovell spoke out about gender bias on late-night TV writing staffs, and subsequently collaborated with Sheryl Sandberg on the writing of Lean In. Her speaking and writing has helped spark a debate about diversity in a male-dominated work environment.
