Crazy – Ex Girlfriend stars Rachel Bloom (Rebecca Bunch) as an unhappy lawyer who quits her job and moves across the country in search of love, with her inner monologue providing irreverent musical interludes. Rebecca’s contagious, sometimes delusional enthusiasm begins to stir the citizens of West Covina, California, shaking them up and giving them a new soundtrack to their lives.
Successful and driven, Rebecca Bunch seemingly has it all — an upscale apartment in Manhattan and a partnership at a prestigious law firm — but she feels like something is missing. After a chance meeting with a former romantic interest, Rebecca impulsively decides to give up her life in New York and relocate to a Los Angeles suburb, she hopes will be the perfect home base as she embarks on a quest for love, adventure and true happiness.
Speaking about how people will relate to her character, Rachel says, “It first sounds like the show is going to be from a male point of view. But actually it’s from the point of view of a woman and deconstructing how do you get to this place where you are stalking someone? How do you get to the place where you move from New York to West Covina? And I think that women will really connect with the emotional highs and lows and the desperation of someone who is otherwise very intelligent doing something that a moron would do.”
