This month’s pilot is a special one written by the great Jenji Kohan! Jenji created Weeds, Orange is the New Black, and is the executive producer of the new hit Netflix series Glow. Her pilot this week is called Gold and it’s about a divorce lawyer named Bobby Gold and the volatile marriages he’s paid to break up. We had such a fun cast for this one including Weeds star Justin Kirk as Bobby Gold, Lauren Lindsey Donzis as Gabby, John Gemberling as Judah Bloom, Yael Groblgas as Suzy Haven, Matt Jones as Lou Berger, Ayden Mayeri as Misty Wells/Karen, Phil Lamarr as Dan Rodale/Jamsheed, Carlos Alazraqui as Ken, Lauren Holt as Dahlia, Kira Kosarin as Amelia/Vera/Alynn,, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.

Even when she was in school, Jenji Kohan didn't like being told what she couldn't do. So it makes sense that after she was told there was no chance she'd ever get on a TV writing staff, Jenji would make the hit shows Weeds, Orange is the New Black and now GLOW. Jenji tells Marc about her early influences, her string of unsatisfying writing jobs, and the inspiration she drew from working with Tracey Ullman. This episode is sponsored by Carvana, One Night Only: Alec Baldwin on Spike, and Audible.
