Personal Quote:

I don't set out to write female lead shows, necessarily. I like deeply flawed characters. When they come to me, or when I'm introduced to them, I follow the stories and the people, rather than setting out to do a female lead thing. See more »

Trivia:

Daughter of Buz Kohan and Rhea Kohan, sister of David Kohan. See more »
