I first wrote the screenplay then later adapted it into the series. The initial conception was to make a Flash cartoon.This is still better than film where women hold down only 16% of these jobs (at least among the 250 top grossing films).But it does mean that the tide is turning, and that women (and men) are responding favorably to smart, female-centric material (so far is number 7 in the top grossing films of 2011).It received mixed reviews during its first season, obtaining a Metacritic weighted average score of 51 percent, based on the impression of 22 critics.The series also earned a nomination in the 2011 People's Choice Awards.
