Rachael Holder On Sex & Race In The New Television Era

March 24, 2017

The 2017 SXSW Festival premiered the new Stage 13 web series “I Love Bekka & Lucy” in their Episodic category — the first time they’ve ever included a digital series — alongside shows like “American Gods” (Starz), “Dear White People” (Netflix) and Showtime’s “I’m Dying Up Here.”

Rachael Holder, a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, spoke with Screener about the important themes of representation, sexuality and growing up in the show.

SCREENER: On Stage 13, do you recommend people watch it in parts or as one unit like SXSW played?

RACHAEL: I recommend watching it as one whole unit. We’re in that binge culture now. I think this is the kind of show that will probably be binge watched. Each episode stands alone. If you want to watch one by itself, you will feel like you’ve watched the beginning, middle and end of an episodic story.
