Watch THR's Full, Uncensored Writer Roundtable With Amy Schumer, Aaron Sorkin and More

THR's Roundtables air on Sundance TV. The shows air Sunday at 8 a.m. PT on channel 557 on DirecTV, 126 on Dish nationwide and at 11 a.m. ET/PT on cable (channel 625 on TWC in L.A., 94 in NYC).

A weekend TV-programming reminder: Sundays, you can check out The Hollywood Reporter's acclaimed roundtable series on SundanceTV.

This past Sunday, it was THR's Writer Roundtable, which featured comedian and actress Amy Schumer, 34; former teacher Nick Hornby (Brooklyn), 58; onetime executive Meg LeFauve (Inside Out); the present-day actor-director Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), 49; novelist Emma Donoghue (Room), 46; and former playwright Aaron Sorkin (Steve Jobs), 54.

For the first time, viewers can watch the roundtable discussion on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel's new original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. And come back to on Monday after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussion online.

The third of seven episodes — the Director Roundtable — will air Sunday, Jan. 3, at 11 a.m. ET/PT on cable systems and at 8 a.m. ET/PT satellite systems (Dish and DirecTV). New episodes will air every Sunday leading up to the Academy Awards on Feb. 28.

The filmed roundtable panels will feature Oscar nominees and other top stars of the year's most buzzed-about films, including actors, actresses, writers, producers and directors. Guests will discuss everything from their individual projects to their crafts and true stories from the business. The panels will present thoughtful, informative takes on the film and television industry today.
