"There is a part in all of us that has been trying to stand in the middle of a group of girls," Goldsberry revealed. "I just relate to a person who never says no to her inner demons. I have them, too. I just tell them 'no.' Wickie gives them the microphone."

The pair also discussed that, while the show is a comedy, they want to create humanize their characters as much as possible.

"We want to make them real. We want to make these women three-dimensional and relatable and human. We're all rooting for their most authentic selves to come through in some way," Bareilles shared.
