Jenna Wortham
Women come up to us all the time and give us the most amazing compliments, like, ‘Salt-N-Pepa was the soundtrack of my life.’ They remind us that we meant so much to them. Sometimes artists don’t really grasp that. But when you talk to fans, you get in touch with your legacy.

Jay Samit

I firmly believe, only because I’ve been doing this for so long, every show takes three years. 90% of them don’t get three years. It just does. It takes a long time to build a community, build a friendship with your characters. It’s hard for people to grasp on and make them care about you.
Kaley Cuoco
