Rachel Shane and Jenna discuss her experience bringing the 10-time Emmy nominated series Genius to life and her team’s intention to show the humanity of its characters: Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso, and soon Mary Shelley.
Rachel walks us through how her decision to take a leave from law school led her to an internship at Televisa and has evolved into an incredible career as an executive at MWM Studios and Red Wagon Entertainment and an executive producer on award-winning films like Lawless and Hell or High Water.
