Rachel Bloom on Rejection

From YouTube to the CW…

“Bloom’s story is a digital-age American dream. Six years ago, she was writing and producing comedy songs on YouTube.

Her first viral hit was an explicit tribute to the author of Fahrenheit 451 entitled Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury.

A few years later, Devil Wears Prada screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna clicked on one of her videos, looked her up, co-wrote a pilot with her, and the rest was history…

Albeit a tortuous one that involved pitching their show to several networks, landing a Showtime deal that fell through, and weathering gloomy ratings at The CW despite widespread critical acclaim.”

From the CW to the Golden Globes…

After the Globes…

“I talked about rejection [in my Golden Globes acceptance speech] but I’m the most fortunate fucking person in the world. I have my own show at 28 and a Golden Globe.

So, yes, I face rejection but I’ve also been very fortunate and understand how fortunate I am.”
