Netflix video answers, ‘Aren’t you that gal …?’

You recognize her face from a movie or TV show, but you just can’t come up with her name.

That GalThat pretty well sums up the premise of That Gal Who Was In That Thing … now showing on Netflix. It also is pretty much the story behind every one of the actresses featured in this documentary.

Eight actresses, all of whom have make their livings in Hollywood but are not big name stars, talk about about working in a world where men have most of the control, something women truck drivers know about.

Featured are:

  • Jayne Atkinson: 24, House of Cards, Criminal Minds, Gossip Girl, Parenthood
  • Paget Brewster: Criminal Minds, Law & Order SVU, Friends, George Lopez, Modern Family
  • L. Scott Caldwell: Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Gridiron Gang
  •  Alicia Coppola: Star Trek Voyager, Crossing Jordan, Bones, Teen Wolf

  • Roma Maffia: Nip/Tuck, NCIS, PrettyLittle Liars, Profiler

These familiar faces talk about their work, their families and how they balance the two.
