Rachel Bloom


AMONG RACHEL BLOOM’S MANY GIFTS IS THE ABILITY TO WRITE A SONG about virtually anything. The co-creator of the CW’s Golden Globe– winning sitcom Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (returning October 13) even wrote a little ditty about pedophilia, “I Love My Daughter (But Not in a Creepy Way)”—not a surprise, perhaps, to fans of her career-making 2010 music video “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury.” Ex-Girlfriend—an hour of musical television that is at once raunchy and hilarious, dark and sparkly—stars Bloom as the perversely optimistic Rebecca Bunch, a New York lawyer who, in Season 1, dropped everything to return to California in pursuit of her high school boyfriend. Things didn’t go well, then they did, then they didn’t again. The new season will continue to explore obsessive love and female friendship, as well as introduce a third theme song, directed by Joseph Kahn. “He just directed Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ as well as all of Episode 4. The musical numbers in that are stellar!” says Bloom, who spoke to Newsweek about another of her show’s themes.
