Date: TBA
Time: TBA
Venue: TBA

What is it that draws viewers to the the brutality, depravity, and unfeeling indifference of characters like Tony Soprano, Don Draper, and Walter White? The reflex that, against all logic, causes us to root for the “villain” of the story, despite their most inhumane tendencies? Writer/creator Glen Mazzara (Damien, The Shield) presents an in-depth look at our fascination with pop culture’s revered & reviled male anti-hero, from its origin in colonial storytelling to its well-documented presence in TV’s “golden age” and beyond to its lasting impact on today’s society.

Panelist: Glen Mazzara (The Shield, Damien, The Walking Dead)
