Yearly Departed 2020
Yearly Departed, despite all that 2020 had to offer, clocks in at under an hour long and is hosted by Phoebe Robinson, featuring eulogies on topics ranging from casual sex to pants to TV cops, delivered by some of our finest living comedians including Tiffany Haddish, Sarah Silverman, Natasha Rothwell, Natasha Leggero, Patti Harrison, 2020 Queen Ziwe, and Rachel Brosnahan who also serves as an executive producer on the project with Paige Simpson, her producing partner at Scrap Paper Pictures.
“Something that was very important to all of us was that this would not just be women in front of the camera, but a group of women behind the camera in every aspect of production, to give positions of power to a broad and diverse coalition of women,” Kalb explained.
“We had a female director, female cinematographer, female composer, female editors, female DP, female assistant director. There just weren’t men involved in Yearly Departed.”
No men at all? “There was a couple of gaffers,” she explained of the on-set crew. “Some sound. Our prompter was a guy. There were a few, but it was a female set. The entire executive production and directors, writers, producers — that was all women,” she stated, with only the exception of the “lovely” David Jammy at Done+Dusted.
