Kay Cannon makes her directorial debut with 'Blockers'

Hosted by

‘Blockers,’ the raunchy but far from mindless tale of 3 girlfriends who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night, is comedy writer Kay Cannon’s directorial debut. When she was hired for the project, she had some work to do on a script about girls, written by a bunch of guys. Cannon tells us how she took a languishing project and turned it into a timely comedy that won raves at South by Southwest. She also recalls an all-night writing session that led to her job on ‘30 Rock’, and sticks up for her short-lived Netflix show, ‘Girlboss.’
