| BARBARA HALL
| Executive Producer & Creator
PGA Women’s Impact Network is thrilled to launch our Salon Series with the creator and executive producers of CBS’s MADAM SECRETARY, Barbara Hall and Lori McCreary. We will network and informally talk about the nuts and bolts of showrunning a television series. This is your chance to ask general questions about bringing a series to life as well as feedback on career paths and challenges you might be facing.
In the spirit of keeping the salon series intimate and conversational, we are limiting the RSVP’s to 30 people. Please only RSVP if you can absolutely attend. RSVP to nicoleCpotter@gmail.com.
