Sara: In my mind I'm pretending that Geena Davis is actually running the country because it makes me feel a lot more secure. We all thought of Hillary Clinton when we heard they were making this show. I hope it takes off.
Sara: ABC has been nothing but supportive and wonderful. I think their point is that people are sick of seeing women who are size two on television, and it's time we had someone who's a size eight carrying a show.
