HBO's Crashing takes on the backlash to P.C. culture and the #MeToo movement
Executive producer Judd Apatow says of Sunday's episode: "As all these issues came up with sexual harassment, we thought, 'Oh, maybe there's a way for us to to reveal deeper aspects of this in our fictional world.' You know, 'Here's what it's like to be a woman on the road and all of the ways you're disrespected. Here's what it's like to have to work with the terrible, misogynist comedian and here's how he treats you on the road. And here's what it's like to be a waitress in a comedy club when all the comedians are trying to hit on you.' We realized (this episode) was a good space to acknowledge what's happening in the world." ALSO: Writer/star Jamie Lee says this episode was filmed before Louis CK's comeback.
