One of today's few true movie stars — people buy tickets to see a movie because she's in it — opens up about the source of her early self-esteem and confidence; the crazy way she wound up performing standup and then improv; why she was planning to quit showbiz just before she landed 'Gilmore Girls'; how the blockbuster success of 'Bridesmaids' and an Emmy win for 'Mike & Molly' within just a few months of each other changed her life; and why she's now expanded beyond comedy into drama, or at least dramedy, playing a real person for the first time in her career — not counting 'Spicey' — and garnering some of the best reviews of her career. But first: Ivana Kirkbride, an expert and thought leader in the over-the-top video space, joins Scott to discuss her time at YouTube and Verizon's go90 and speculate about the future of 'premium mid-form content' and 'micro-windowing.'
