“One of the things I love so much about this show is that of course its a period piece about Emily Dickinson which takes place in the 1850’s but it’s driven by contemporary and urban music. When I read the script for the first time that was one of the main things that stood out to me.”The singer and actress spoke about the TV project and her executive producer role:
“It’s been so incredible working with Apple on this project as it’s a new venture for them and for me as-well. I’ve never really done anything before in the TV space. A lot of how this all works is new to me to”.”I’m executive producing the show which is my first time filling that role. I wanted to show up in a way that wasn’t just as an actor. I wanted to be a part of the decision making processes and see things through from the beginning, middle and – to the – end.”On Rap star Whiz Khalifa being unveiled as a cast member earlier this week, Steinfeld had this to say:
“We have some amazing guest stars. Whiz Khalifa is in our show, which is crazy and amazing and weird and wonderful. It’s so funny to see what people have had to say about him being in the show.
