For many, content creating is more than just piecing together a project but it’s providing resources that are palpable for the masses. This remains true for the undeniable wonderful, Kadine Anckle, as the Showrunner & Executive Producer for Turning the Tables with Robin Roberts. In a very lively conversation I had with Kadine we discussed why this project had a significance that resonnated with everyone!
When beginning work on the project, Kadine had a Zoom with Robin to discuss the overall idea.
“She’s [Robin’s] the host, she’s the vibe – I had to completely understand where she’s coming from and what she wants to accomplish with the project. When you work with talent, you always want to provide a safe space for them to create their art. [Robin] is such a beautiful light and she is vibrant and geniuely kind.”
Turning the Table with Robin Roberts is a pivot experience. Kadine shares, “… For them [conversations include Debbie Allen, Sofia Carson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jenna Dewan, Sheila E., Melissa Etheridge, Mickey Guyton, Betsey Johnson, Billie Jean King, Tig Notaro, Raven-Symoné and Josie Totah] to talk about what it means to be a woman – whether that be as a mother or a transgender woman… Then to watch them be able to turn the table and they ask questions of Robin. And for her to be able to reveal herself in the way that she did, telling stories she never told before, for me that was the highest honors.”
