Zoe Saldana flashes a big smile as she poses backstage at the Reinventing Social Entertainment panel presented by AOL during 2015 Advertising Week AWXII at the Times Center Stage on Tuesday (September 29) in New York City.
That same day, Uzo Aduba, her Orange Is The New Black co-star Dascha Polanco and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Tituss Burgess got together at A Diversity Revolution: How Non-Network Shows Are Shattering Mainstream Norms panel at the Hard Rock Cafe New York.
“Audiences are ready for the truth and whatever that truth might look like, physically or internally,” Uzo expressed at the panel (via TIME). “It’s really exciting to see now that television is investing in the truth, authentic representation as an extension of that, and writers are actually excited by that. And I think what’s really wonderful is that audiences themselves are finding themselves excited by it.”
Uzo‘s other Orange Is The New Black co-star Laverne Cox also hit the stage that day at the Viacom Leadership Breakfast: The Attention Experience panel presented by Viacom while Ryan Seacrest spoke onstage at the Sound Strategy: Why Millennials and Gen Z Are Listening More panel presented by iHeartMedia at the Times Center Stage.
