Lynda Obst

Hosted by

Lynda Obst, producer of films as diverse as The Fisher King, Contact and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, has a new book, Sleepless in Hollywood. She talks with Kim about why the big movie studios have become addicted to comic book characters and sequels. The result? They now turn a deaf ear to the sort of original -- but commercial -- fare that was once her bread and butter. Despite this, Obst is still in the game. She has an executive producer credit on the new Christopher Nolan movie, Insterstellar, and she's now also producing television. The TV Land hit, Hot in Cleveland, was based on her original idea.
