Watch Hollywood Reporter's Full, Uncensored Drama Actress Roundtable With Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington and More

THR's Drama Actress Roundtable brings together Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Paulson, Kerry Washington, Julianna Margulies, Regina King, Constance Zimmer and Kirsten Dunst; THR Roundtables air every Sunday on SundanceTV.

A weekend TV-programming note: Check out The Hollywood Reporter's acclaimed roundtable series on SundanceTV.

This Sunday was THR's Drama Actress Roundtable, which features seven of TV's top actresses — Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), 49; Jennifer Lopez, 46 (NBC's Shades of Blue); Sarah Paulson, 41 (FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, American Horror Story: Hotel); Kirsten Dunst, 34 (FX's Fargo); Regina King, 45 (ABC's American Crime, HBO's The Leftovers); Kerry Washington, 39 (ABC's Scandal, HBO's Confirmation); and Constance Zimmer, 45 (Lifetime's UnREAL) — in a candid conversation about the roles they will (and won't) strip down for, the scenes that required them to call their lawyers and the need to love their characters, even if their audience does not.

Viewers can watch THR's Roundtables every Sunday on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel's original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. Come back to THR.com on Mondays after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussions online.

Up next is the Drama Actor Roundtable, which will air Sunday, July 3. The shows air at 7 a.m. PT on channel 557 on DirecTV and channel 126 on Dish nationwide, and at 10 a.m. ET/PT on cable (channel 625 on TWC in L.A., 94 in NYC). .

The filmed roundtable panels will feature Emmy nominees and other top stars of the year's most buzzed-about television series, including comedy and drama actors, actresses and showrunners, and reality hosts and producers. Guests will discuss everything from their individual projects to their craft and true stories from the business. The panels will present thoughtful, informative takes on the film and television industry today.
