92Y is proud to present an exclusive conversation with the leading women of NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Join Jane Levy, Mary Steenburgen, and Lauren Graham as they share stories about the musical series that charmed critics and audiences with its wholly original first season. The series, currently available on NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock, will return for its highly anticipated second season in 2021.
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist centers around a computer coder (Levy) who, after an unusual event, suddenly starts to hear the innermost thoughts of the people around her through imaginatively staged musical numbers. Through her newfound ability, Zoey is able to communicate with her ailing father, advance herself in the workplace, and develop unlikely relationships. Comedic and joyous, the series is also rooted in the deeply personal experiences of creator Austin Winsberg, who drew inspiration for the show by envisioning his late father being able to see the world through musical numbers as he was losing his ability to communicate in the real world due to a rare neurological disease.
In this intimate conversation, the co-stars will explore what drew them to the project, their most memorable musical performances, why the show has resonated with audiences, and their hopes for season two.
