Personal Quote:

[on her role as a working mother] If I am succeeding at one, I am inevitably failing at the other. That is the trade-off. That is the Faustian bargain with being a powerful working woman who is also a powerful mother. You never feel one hundred percent okay. You never get your sea-legs. You are always a little nauseous.

Trivia:

After graduating from Dartmouth, she read a news article that claimed that getting into USC's film school was harder than getting into Harvard Law School, so she elected to take on the more competitive challenge. See more »

Trademark:

Her shows tend to have strong level-headed women as leads.
