Hollywood has been brought to its metaphorical knees by the pandemic. Production has stopped. Easy funding has dried up. Audiences are holed up and anxious. International alliances (China) may be broken. And no one knows when any of it will change.

Hollywood, The Sequel is a limited-run podcast series in which leading journalist John Horn asks some of the most important and influential people in film, television and entertainment at large (established stars and emerging taleånt) about how they hope Hollywood will change in this moment of severe disruption.
