We’re Here: Celebrating 45 Years in Orange County


11:30 a.m., Friday, Dec. 3, at The Fairmont Newport Beach

The Hollywood influence on social causes

Brothers & Sisters Executive Producer Sarah Caplan to address Planned Parenthood audience on how politically relevant topics are integrated into today’s media production

ORANGE, CA — During her tenure in the TV/film industry, Sarah Caplan has consistently tackled difficult social issues in her storylines. Starting on the development staff of the beloved 1980’s TV series thirtysomething and working her way to Executive Producer of the award-winning series Brothers & Sisters, Caplan’s career has been marked by intelligent scripts and believable characters.

On Dec. 3, the writer/producer and longtime Planned Parenthood supporter will share her perspective on how her personal and professional worlds intersect — how she’s seen Hollywood address social issues and its impact on advocacy movements.

Caplan will join more than 200 local philanthropists and health advocates at Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties’ Annual Luncheon at The Fairmont Newport Beach, where they’ll celebrate the agency’s 45thyear of building healthy communities in Orange County.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.pposbc.org/AnnualLuncheon.


From thirtysomething to Brothers & Sisters, Writer/Producer Sarah Caplan has drawn in audiences by producing real-life characters and scenarios in films such as Glory, Legends of the Fall, and Dangerous Beauty, and a string of hit TV shows, including Felicity, Alias, and Lost.
