I’m really ready to have a larger voice in the creative process.” I had been talking to people, trying to pitch ideas for shows, and I’d been really going in that direction, so when Alloy came to me with this idea, my agents were like, “She really wants to produce. ” But then, you think about it and everything is on the internet.

She’s really great because I like to try a million different things.

We really made it real, and really gave each girl strong personalities.
