Rachel Bloom advises, when you walk into a room to pitch a musical comedy to network executives, you might want to avoid actually singing during the meeting – the occasion could lend itself to some awkward moments of silence.
The Golden Globe-winner joined her “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” team at PaleyFest LA on March 20, 2019, live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, inviting fans to join them in giving the show a proper send-off. The “Farewell Seasons” event also showcased another favorite from The CW, “Jane the Virgin,” which returns for its fifth and final run on Wednesday, March 27.
As for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” after four carefully-crafted seasons, the musical comedy will air its series finale on April 5. The show will be aptly followed by “Yes, It’s Really Us Singing: The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Concert Special!” which was recently taped at the Orpheum Theater, in front of thousands of screaming fans.
“I hope that it comes out as much fun as it was to do,” Pete Gardner, who plays Darryl Whitefeather, told AXS on the carpet at PaleyFest. People even showed up donning costumes for the concert event. Gardner recalls at one point during the taping yelling out, “Where are my Darryls at?” which was proceeded by a group of Darryl-dressed fans partaking in a dance party toward the front of the stage.
