She talks about her experience writing on You're the Worst and what it's like to be a television writer in the middle of a pandemic. A great conversation with a great writer! Enjoy! Eight stars Anna Camp as Jillian,  Langston Kerman as Trevor, Kelly Marie Tran as Alicia,  John C. McGinley as Rick, Larry Wilmore as Donnie, Nancy Lenehan as Carolyn, Mimi Kennedy as Lori, Ayden Mayeri as Pam/Stephanie, Craig Cackowski as Ace, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
