IndieWire Senior TV Writer Proma Khosla joined me for this week's Yellowjackets recap for Season 2 Episode 6: Qui.
We enhanced our vocabularies, fangirled over Lisa, the 14th Gilly, and Sophie Nelisse's acting, decided that Akilah makes a much better plastic surgeon than OB/GYN, and indulged in the usual obsessive theorizing. Why aren't they eating Ben yet? And why have we not yet seen petite Christina Ricci punching someone with brass knuckles yet?? Proma Khosla is a Senior TV Writer based in New York City, where she covers all things TV and streaming. She is IndieWire’s resident Marvel and Star Wars correspondent ( “Ms. Marvel” and “Andor” supremacy!), and a tireless advocate of a little show called “Yellowjackets.” She strives to cover everything with equal expertise and detail, whether it’s the latest wave of Mindy Kaling discourse or the chaotic life choices of characters on “Emily in Paris” or just shoehorning a ”Lost” reference into any kind of article. Before IndieWire, Proma was a Senior TV Reporter at Mashable, where she started her ongoing coverage of South Asian representation in Hollywood (especially when it comes to dance). Her work has also appeared in Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, Decider, Glamour, and Brown Girl Magazine. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Communications, Proma worked on film sets including the horror-indie “It Follows” and with Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan. In 2017 she launched Lion Party Films, where she produces stories by and for the South Asian diaspora with co-founder Raashi Desai. You can follow Proma’s deranged TV takes — sorry, that’s “incisive coverage” — on Twitter (if Twitter still exists) at @promawhatup, and her production and other projects on Instagram.
