Joan Wagner: What attracted you to the project?

Lauren Graham: I loved the script, and I just thought it was both sweet and funny, which is a strangely hard combination to find.

Jeff Daniels: The writing was so great. The writing makes the actor's job so much easier. John Hindman really did a great job of giving us a script that we could not only work with but be excited about all the way through. And Lauren was great; she's just so great with comedy. It made it really easy to say yes.
