Dern praised the ‘tribe of fierce women’ who came together to make the series, both in front and behind the camera.

‘The show was delicious and fun to get inside of for so many people,’ she said, according to Variety.

‘But also it was speaking directly about being true to your voice and standing up for yourself, and I feel very proud to be a part of a group of women getting to tell that story right now.’
