My Television Producer Girl Crush
I love Stephanie Savage, the creator of Gossip Girl. She's an academic who abandoned her PhD to write tv shows that actually apply what she learned in grad school. Just think about her scenes that deconstruct the male gaze (a la Blair stripping for Chuck) or the fact that these kids live in what Foucault would call a panopticon - See, Stephanie Savage is really educated and smart. So, here's a neat little article all about her. If you're interested in women in entertainment, read it here.
