TVLine Post-Mortem Interview

Thanks to TVHype for the heads up.

TVLINE | What exactly set this in motion? Natascha had another opportunity she wanted to pursue?

Natascha had this great opportunity on a cable show (Hulu’s The First, set on Mars and starring Sean Penn) that she really wanted to do and which was going to limit her availability. It posed a question for us: Do we figure out a way to temporarily absent her from the show? Or not even absent her but have her involved on a lesser basis? And what occurred to us is we had an opportunity here to do something that TV hasn’t done before, which is show a president who is a widower in office. We loved that as a prospect. We love Natascha as an actress as well, so it was difficult to figure out the right thing to do, but once the opportunity popped up, it became clear that this is the road [to take].
