THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
TV's undisputed "It" girl and hipster goddess shattered all notions of what's sexy -- and funny -- with her realistic docu-comedy, which earned the writer/director/star three Emmy noms and recently wrapped filming on its second season, set to bow Jan. 13. The 27-year-old's book deal with Random House for more than $3 million solidified her multimedia-mogul-on-the-rise status.
Who gave me my first big break: Janet Pierson, programmer of the SXSW film festival. She screened my first feature [2009's Creative Nonfiction] which, at 57 minutes, wasn't quite a feature after all.
When I leave work, I can't wait to: Watch New Girl and fall asleep with my computer on my chest.
Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Is with other, different kinds of work. I have two modes: work or nap. All else I fail at.
Proudest moment this year: When I moved my dad's car for him in the middle of the night even though I have no license!
Totally starstruck around: I'd pretty much freak out on Obama.
Top three shows on my DVR: I honestly can't work it. It's a mystery.
