Friday, February 3 – "Film and Television Powerhouse, Angela Robinson" – Virginia State Delegate Betsy Carr
“Film and Television Powerhouse, Angela Robinson"
Born in San Francisco in 1971, Angela Robinson was devoted to theatre. That is, until watching a lesbian-themed episode of the NBC show, “Friends.” Believing film would better fulfill her goals, she began film studies at New York University.
Robinson’s big break came with her award-winning 2003 short film, D.E.B.S. Her 2005 G-rated Disney film, Herbie Fully Loaded, is the highest-grossing film directed by a black woman, bringing in $144 million at the box office. Her television experience includes writing, directing and producing episodes of Showtime’s lesbian series, The L-Word.
Robinson is married to fellow television writer and director Alexandra Kondracke. They reside in an L.A. neighborhood called Los Feliz, which translates to “the happy ones.”
