On today's show, I talk to writer and casting director Katja Blichfeld. Originally from California, Katja moved to New York to pursue a career in casting and worked on all seven seasons of 30 Rock, garnering an Emmy for her work. She's also cast a number of other shows, including The Carrie Diaries and the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica. Outside of casting, Katja is also the co-creator of the highly-acclaimed webseries High Maintenance. Created with her husband Ben Sinclair, the show is now in development at a major cable network.
