Tina Fey shares with sardonic wit her journey from young girl announcing “I am the boss!” to being the boss of 200 people as producer of “30 Rock.” Along the way, she captures the morass of cultural expectations she has faced en route to her current voice/ presence and her commitment to create opportunity for diversity of presence and voice for women of the future in her role as producer, the boss.
