After shooting seven grueling seasons on "Dexter," Jennifer Carpenter makes her first foray into romantic comedy territory with the New York-set indie "Ex-Girlfriends," from first-time writer-director Alexander Poe. Carpenter couldn't be happier. She is, in fact, so enamored with the project, and at the chance to tackle a role in a genre she's not accustomed to finding herself in, that she came on board to serve as an executive producer for the film -- her first time ever doing so. Carpenter called in to Indiewire to discuss how she came onto the project, stepping outside of her comfort zone, and why the seventh season of "Dexter" was the toughest one yet. ["Ex-Girlfriends" comes out iTunes and on demand November 27 and at New York's Cinema Village the following day. "Dexter" airs Sundays at 9pm Et/Pt on Showtime.] It was refreshing seeing you in something lighthearted for a change! I'm used to seeing you...
