I saw myself as a trailblazer in the 1980s as a female lawyer in the City. It was exciting, as women were outnumbered by men five to one.

You have a finite amount of people who watch at a certain time every day. But when you have that kind of success that ‘Outnumbered Overtime’ continues to have, it’s gotta be a broader audience. I’m really thrilled about that.
