THR.com associate editor Ashley Lee discusses the comedic series with co-creator and star Rachel Bloom.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-creator and star Rachel Bloom is the latest participant in The Hollywood Reporter's TV Talks series at New York's 92nd Street Y.

Bloom is sitting down with THR.com associate editor Ashley Lee to discuss the very original romantic comedy series.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which is currently in the middle of its third season on The CW, follows the life of Yale and Harvard educated lawyer Rebecca Bunch (Bloom), who decides to move from New York City to California to win back her first love, Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III).

As the series has evolved, so has the character of Rebecca. In a recent episode, she attempted to commit suicide, winding up in the hospital and then being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in a subsequent installment. 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend uniquely incorporates original musical numbers into each episode and deconstructs exactly what it means to be “crazy.”

Bloom won a Golden Globe in 2016 for best performance by an actress in a television series – musical or comedy. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has earned four Emmy nominations and won in the categories of outstanding single-camera picture editing for a comedy series and outstanding choreography in 2016.    

Bloom’s conversation with Lee kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET. Watch the live stream here and below.
