Television production in the U.S. has become a freelance market with work based on performance reputation. While all media workers face challenges in finding and retaining jobs in television production, there are differences in career outcomes for men and women which can occur as a result of gendered work culture. This paper documents women’s experiences working in television production, a male dominated field, to reveal how women have succeeded in the business in spite of subtle gender biases that exist in the industry. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 12 women currently working in television production provided insights into their careers, their experiences, and how they define success. It also provides insights into what the industry can do to help promote more women in production. Feminist, cultural, and political economy were used as the guiding theories for this study.
