Since it premiered on Showtime in late 2021, ‘Yellowjackets’ has become an unstoppable cultural phenomenon. The series, which comes from creators Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, tells the thrilling story of a women’s soccer team that gets stranded in the woods and the shocking consequences that follow the surviving women for the rest of their lives. After racking up seven Emmy nominations in 2022, the series made a massive comeback when its hit second season premiered in March. Some of the biggest stars in show business also appeared at IndieWire’s 2022 Consider This Brunch.

With new hits like “Beef” and returning favorites like “Stranger Things,” Netflix delivered some of last year’s biggest TV hits. ‘Stranger Things’ season 4 shattered viewership records for the streaming giant, as fans have clearly embraced the darker tone the Duffer Brothers have employed for the penultimate season of their ’80s-inspired series. One of the most acclaimed series of the 21st century, ‘Stranger Things’ has already won 12 Primetime Emmys and looks poised to compete for more this season. And “Beef” became one of this spring’s surprise hits, with fans and critics alike rallying around Lee Sung Jin’s tense story of a car crash that permanently alters two lives. Netflix panel at IndieWire Consider This event will focus on the crafts behind these rich and engaging stories.

“P-Valley” — Katori Hall’s unflinching depiction of life in a Southern strip club — was critically acclaimed for its fabulous costumes, serious depiction of marginalized communities, and quick response to current events. The panel will cover the show’s second season, and Starz has already announced a third season. IndieWire has been proud to support this series since the beginning.

Putting a new spin on a beloved IP like ‘Grease’ was a tall order, but Annabel Oakes and her team rose to the occasion with ‘Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies’. The hit Paramount+ series is set four years before the events of the original film and tells the story of Rizzo’s iconic girl gang and their rise to high school prominence in 1954. The dazzling choreography and 1950s set design made the series an instant hit with viewers and a worthy continuation of the legacy of ‘Grease’.

This private event is open to Emmy voters and other television industry insiders.
