Marti Noxon on ‘Dietland,’ ‘Sharp Objects’ & the power dynamics of TV

Hosted by

When Marti Noxon’s former colleague on AMC’s ‘Mad Men,’ Kater Gordon, accused series creator Matthew Weiner of sexual harassment, Noxon decided to speak out on Gordon’s behalf. It was a bold move as even then, Noxon was preparing to film her new series ‘Dietland’ for AMC. Whatever blowback might have come, ‘Dietland’ is now airing on the cable channel, and meanwhile, Noxon has another new series, ‘Sharp Objects,’ on HBO. She tells us how she went from spending years as the number two person on TV shows, to running the show--or shows--herself.
