Female-driven animated comedy is ISA Fast Track Genre Winner

The animated tv pilot MANSPLAINO by Dava Whisenant & Steve Young has been chosen as the ISA Fast Track Fellowship Genre Winner for Animation. The female-driven satirical comedy was also chosen as a Semifinalist in the recent Austin Film Fest Screenplay Competition. MANSPLAINO was initially inspired by Dava's personal experiences on the film festival circuit with a documentary she directed, where she was frequently assumed to be the assistant of the film's star, rather than the filmmaker. Her co-writer, a former Letterman staff writer, witnessed this happening, and MANSPLAINO's main characters developed from there.
