"I guess I hope to make up for lost time," Dixon said. "I have so much pent-up professional and creative energy and can't wait to use so many of the skills that I haven't been able to utilize while sidelined by toxic men and their spheres of influence."
Since "On the Record" will no longer be distributed via Apple TV+, the film is seeking a new release partner. And if the world is eventually able to see the film, Dixon said, she'll no longer feel like she's left "dangling from a cliff."
"I think the film is its best defense," she said. "I think the film just deserves a shot. That's what I hope for, and I have hope after the premiere that film will get a shot." ___ (Times staff writer Meg James contributed to this report.) Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
