After the storybook ending for Lucy portrayed by Shiri Appleby last season, the second season follows the roller-coaster love life of Chloe Cunningham. It was just a great opportunity from Alloy Entertainment, Bob Levy and Chip Reed to come and be a part of the project and I was very excited from the very beginning.
In reading the role of Chloe, a 26 year-old who is a single girl living in Venice and experiencing dating life after completely deciding that love does not exist. I, on the other hand, do believe in love. I believe in love a lot. I rented an apartment in Venice, a bunch of my girlfriends lived in Venice, and I have a clothing line that works out of there.
It was so relatable and on point to conversations I was having in my group of friends that it was just a great opportunity to kind of live in that world and highlight the comedy of that world of being a something and single. It can be a very hard city to date in since it is a very big city. Yet it has the best stories. All my friends were single as well over the summer, so everyone was bringing their stories to the table and then having it all of sudden pop up in the scripts.
Just the parallels between what the story was and stories that I was actually hearing in real life. There were the same, so I loved that. I loved that they were just so in line with each other. As producer, do you have a hand in shaping the storylines? What exactly do you get to do wearing the different hats? So just exploring some of those and being a part of the casting process. Were you able to write some of the advice that Chloe gets from her future self? Actually, in the second season, the app that Lucy had developed has evolved.
So now instead of receiving texts, Future Chloe is actually face-timing Present Chloe. But it was really fun to play an older version of Chloe as well. You mentioned you had a hand in casting. Can you hint at the kind of men that Chloe may be encountering along her journey this next season? It was great fun! So will Chloe be going on many dates this season, or will she be exploring one potential relationship this season?
There is a series of many dates. She has a great love for television and firmly believes that entertainment is a world of wondrous adventures that deserves to be shared and explored — she invites you to join her.
