'Emma Approved': Brent Bailey on 'Lizzie Bennet Diaries,' Darcy, 'Clueless'

"Emma Approved" is the newest web series sensation to hit our screens. The series, from the Emmy award-winning team behind "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" and spin-off "Welcome to Sanditon," is a modernization of Jane Austen's "Emma."
