Lizzo's Watch out for the big grrrls

This week on Dropping Bars, Kimron speaks to Glenda N Cox about her journey in the world of reality TV and the journey to winning an Emmy Award as Executive Producer on the show Lizzo’s Look Out For The Big Grrrls.

On September 12, 2020, Glenda N. Cox won an Emmy for her work as Executive Producer on Lizzo’s Watch Out For the Big Grrrls, which won Best Competition Series. The win was historic as it was produced by an all-female team and beat out Ru Paul’s Drag Race which has won in excess of ten Emmys. Glenda is the first Grenadian to win an Emmy. 

Glenda was born in Grenada, lived in Trinidad in her early years and currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her 15-year-old daughter. She has always had a passion for storytelling. After getting her Bachelor of Arts in English and Mass Communications at Virginia State University, she relocated to Hollywood.  Glenda first worked as a Writer’s Assistant on several projects for Paramount and Disney while attending screenwriting classes at UCLA. 

Glenda has worked with many production companies and networks, including BRAVO, VH-1, MTV Networks, The Food Network, TLC, LIFETIME, OWN, PEACOCK and most recently, AMAZON PRIME. 

She has worked with many movers and shakers in the industry, including Oprah, Spike Lee, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, Nanette Burstein, Joel Stillerman and Lizzo.  

In 2020 whilst in Grenada, she wrote and filmed a pilot for a reality show which would introduce the World to the beauty and talent of the Caribbean islands. She is also working on a two-scripted pilot series.
