April 21 (UPI) -- The L Word and Jackie Brown actress Pam Grier will discuss her life and career in a Season 4 episode of Turner Classic Movies' podcast, The Plot Thickens, this fall.

"The word 'iconic' is overused in this industry, but Pam has been a true revolutionary regarding the depiction of Black women in Hollywood," the show's host Ben Mankiewicz said in a statement Wednesday.
