Duke Entertainment, Media & Arts Network (DEMAN) Weekend-ish


Join us for a special-edition Duke Entertainment, Media & Arts Network (DEMAN) Weekend-ish, featuring black-ish and grown-ish! Meet the amazing Duke alumni writers for these award-winning comedy shows as they take us behind the scenes of the creative process, explore cultural themes, and share their career paths.

Instead of traveling to Durham for the 11th Annual DEMAN Weekend, this year we’re bringing a stellar, live panel of incredibly talented, creative Dukies to you via Zoom.

As part of DEMAN Weekend-ish, you are also invited to watch any of our previous signature industry sessions. No registration required for these hour-long virtual episodes featuring exceptional DEMAN alumni from across the country, including NBC’s “Good Girls”, Beats by Dre and MISS JUNETEENTH. See the link below!
