Lauren Gellert

WE tv’s foothold with the female audience is due in large part to Gellert, who oversees its slate of unscripted originals. Among recent victories, the net experienced record-breaking viewership with the premiere of “Mama June: From Not to Hot,” its highest-rated new unscripted series of 2017. Gellert also serve as an exec producer for the return of genre-launching “Bridezillas”; the reboot is slated to head down the aisle next year. Murphy Brown is Gellert’s fave female TV star. “She was the most organized, disorganized executive,” she says.

Who is your favorite current female TV character and why?
Murphy Brown. She was the most organized, disorganized executive, always keeping her witty sense of humor even when facing her greatest challenges…or worst assistants.
