Now that I've got promoted at the firm, people are really seeing that I'm a completely responsible, professional person. ♪ good morning. It's going to be terrific. We saw the pilot. We've taken peeks at it. But you are nothing if not busy on this. Writing, producing and, as well, starring. How do you balance just an average workday here? It's really tough.

And is there -- was there anything greater you wanted to make? Not just -- it's about social outcasts and what happens outside. In manhattan, they are like the opposites of the "sex and the city" girls. This is dorky and socially awkward.

So, my character in the show is a lawyer. And because I in real life have a law degree -- you wanted to put it to good use. If everyone gets arrested right now, I could maybe help. Give her a call. She's available. Angela robbins wants to know, celebrity crush is whom? Definitely channing tatum. Hard to beat. What does he have the rest of us don't have? Other than all that great stuff. Finally, I'm going to make you pick one. Who was your favorite "pitch perfect" co-star and why? They're all my friends. There's like ten of them. All tied for first?
