THR’s Actress Roundtable airs Sunday morning on SundanceTV.

Six top actresses — including Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Mary J. Blige, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan — open up about risky roles and how the industry’s culture of abuse might finally be on the verge of change: “I feel hopeful because we’re not ignoring it anymore.”

Viewers can watch the roundtable discussions Sundays on SundanceTV as part of the cable channel’s original nonfiction series, Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter, produced in partnership with THR. Come back to THR.com on Mondays after the shows air for the full, uncensored discussion online.

The third of seven episodes — the Actress Roundtable — airs this Sunday, Jan. 28. For subsequent episodes, tune in every Sunday at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT on satellite (channel 557 on DirecTV and 126 on Dish nationwide), and at 10 a.m. ET/PT on cable (channel 625 on Spectrum/TWC in L.A., 94 in NYC).

The filmed roundtable panels feature this year’s top filmmakers including directors, actors and actresses, producers, screenwriters, and cinematographers. Guests will discuss everything from their individual projects to their craft and true stories from the business. The panels will present thoughtful, informative takes on the film and television industry today.
