"If you thought the show was going to be a funny 'Fatal Attraction,' that's what we're going into the season as," said series star Rachel Bloom during the Television Critics Association summer press tour in August. "She thinks she's a woman scorned."
But it won't always work out as planned.
"If Rebecca tried to boil a bunny, she'd go, 'It's so cute,' and a month later she'd have 50 bunnies," said executive producer Aline Brosh McKenna. "She's not very good at being the femme fatale she'd like to be."
"Rebecca associates sex with power," Bloom added. "Whenever she's trying to get her power back, she uses her sexuality very openly."
Brosh and Bloom said they have a four-season arc for the series and they don't worry about an early cancellation, adhering to the slogan, "Live like you're dying."
"We just do them the way we planned it," McKenna said.
