With its notorious instability at an all-time high, is Hollywood worth a full-time effort anymore? For actress Cristen Coppen and many others working in the entertainment industry, the answer, increasingly, is no. Despite regular work and appearances on countless TV shows and movies including “Road Trip” and Hulu’s “Casual”, Cristen set out from the beginning to complement her entertainment career with outside endeavors like her handmade jewelry company and investments in several John Deere dealerships. While drinking cabernet franc, she discusses her many professional and personal passions—like her female mentoring program I Am Now Me—that allow her to pursue acting from a healthy emotional and financial perspective. Also, sitcom writer Pete Tibbals fills in for the night for Scott, who was blocked by wildfires from making the trip into town for the episode. Or he’s just lazy.

Nothing looms larger on Hollywood’s horizon than China—how to appeal to its audiences, attract its investment dollars, and navigate its rules and customs along the way. In this episode, we talk about the intricacies of Chinese funding with two American producers who have done plenty of it: Resonate Entertainment’s Brent Emery and Nick D’Angelo of China-backed Cristal Pictures. Over three bottles of wine from Spain’s Lopez de Heredia winery, the panel discusses the negative affect of a crackdown by the Chinese government on money fleeing the country, and why forming personal connections with Chinese backers is essential to a transaction. Meanwhile, director Gren Wells fills in for an absent Scott to talk about her role in the New York Times article that broke the news of Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct.
