HBO & NYWIFT Present: Industry Screening + Conversation “I Hate Suzie,” 1/13

Join us on Wednesday, January 13th for a screening and pre-recorded conversation with the creative team of the HBO Max original series, I Hate Suzie

Suzie Pickles, a star on the wane, has her whole life upended when her phone is hacked and a photo of her in an extremely compromising position is released for the whole world to see. This excruciatingly honest show follows the various stages of Suzie’s trauma episode by episode, through Shock, Denial, Fear, Shame, Bargaining, Guilt, Anger, and Acceptance as Suzie and her best friend and manager Naomi try to hold her life, career, and marriage together in the face of being exposed for who she truly is. But who the hell even is that?
