Dan Futterman ('The Looming Tower'), Courtney Kemp ('Power'), Bruce Miller ('The Handmaid's Tale') and David Shore ('The Good Doctor') also star on the Drama Showrunner Roundtable. 'Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter' airs every Sunday on SundanceTV.

Dan Futterman (The Looming Tower), Courtney Kemp (Power), Peter Morgan (The Crown), Bruce Miller (The Handmaid's Tale), David Shore (The Good Doctor) and Lena Waithe (The Chi) open up about race in the writers room, shooting awkward sex scenes and killing off favorite characters: "I was crying while I typed their demise."

Viewers can watch the roundtable discussions 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 discussion online.

The last of seven episodes — the Drama Showrunner Roundtable — airs this Sunday, Aug. 5.

The filmed roundtable panels feature Emmy nominees and other top stars of the year's most buzzed-about television series, including comedy and drama actors, actresses, showrunners and producers.
