MISSING IN ACTION: The Women Behind Television's Golden Age.  A documentary by Molly Sackler and Jason Wulkowicz. Image of a woman in a skirt standing in TV studio.
     
"Missing in Action" is the untold story of the unsung women who helped to invent television in post-war New York. They were television's first directors, producers, writers, and PAs; but no one knows who they are today. This documentary turns the spotlight on these behind-the-scenes pioneers, toppling stale ideas of 1950’s Woman and of Television’s Golden Age.
