About A Million Little Things:
Friendship isn’t a big thing. It’s a million little things. When our gang’s dear friend Jon – a man perfect on paper – took his own life, his family and friends were left to pick up the pieces. Each of these friends is not living the version of life they thought they’d be living. And their friend’s death forces them to take a look at the choices they’ve made and to solve the unanswerable mystery of a man they thought they knew.

A Million Little Things, Season 2 returns on Thursday, January 23, 10pm/9pm CT on ABC!

  • WHEN: Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 7:00 pm (Doors at 6:00 pm)
  • WHERE: YouTube Space LA
    12422 Bluff Creek Dr.; Los Angeles, CA 90094

“The male gaze,” largely acknowledged as “the act of depicting women and the world from a masculine, heterosexual perspective that represents women as sexual objects,” has been the dominant viewpoint since the beginning of art and culture — but what happens when women become the subject instead of the object? This panel conversation will explore the “female gaze” with writers, directors, and actors who are reclaiming female agency by (figuratively and literally) shifting viewers’ perspectives, and telling stories that place women and their world view at the center.

Panelists include Krista Vernoff (Showrunner / Executive Producer, Grey’s Anatomy & Station 19), Gloria Calderon Kellett (Showrunner / Executive Producer / Director / Actor, One Day at a Time), Abigail Spencer (Actor, Reprisal), and additional folks announced at a later date.
