‘Unprisoned’: Kerry Washington On Breaking Taboos By Telling Difficult Stories With Joy—SXSW


Section: Featured Section

Logline: Inspired by Tracy McMillan’s life, UnPrisoned is a half-hour comedy about a messy, but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom whose life is turned right-side-up when her dad gets out of prison and moves in with her and her teenage son. In this session, join writer and Creator of UnPrisoned Tracy McMillan, actor Marque Richardson, actor Faly Rakotohavana, actress Jordyn McIntosh, and Primetime Emmy Award-winning actress and Executive Producer Kerry Washington for an intimate discussion on the new Hulu series produced by ABC Signature.

Panelists: Creator Tracy McMillan, and actors Delroy Lindo, Kerry Washington, Marque Richardson, Faly Rakotohavana, and Jordyn McIntosh.

Premiered: March 10 via Hulu

Key Quote: Washington: “In doing the show, we were learning more about the reality of the situation in our country. There are 80 million Americans living with a criminal record, especially in communities of color and poor communities. So here we are acting like this is a community that is small, secretive, that doesn’t need to be talked about—but this is all of us. If we haven’t been part of the system itself, whether the prison system or foster care—these systems that are breaking us down and breaking us apart—then we love someone whose been part of these systems. So it’s so important to be making a show like this but also to be making it with joy.”

The Deadline Studio at SXSW runs March 10-13, where the cast and creatives behind the best and buzziest titles in this year’s lineup sit down with Deadline’s festival team to discuss their movies and the paths they took to get to Austin, Texas.
