Aline Brosh McKenna has written hit movies like The Devil Wears Prada and 27 Dresses. She wasn't looking to helm a TV show, but that's what happened after she fell in love with performer Rachel Bloom's satirical, musical videos on YouTube. McKenna tells us how creating Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was her version of "running away to the circus," and how she and Bloom revived the pilot after it had been declared dead.
