Catastrophe's Sharon Horgan on Creating Flawed Characters

Sharon Horgan has a knack for the creating shows that reveal her characters as determined, funny, sexy, complex, and at times, very flustered. Her comedy has a lot of insightful observations into what it means to be a professional woman negotiating multiple roles including wife and mother. These themes are in full display on her show Catastrophe.

Sharon sat down with Jesse to talk about getting past the awkwardness of writing and filming sex scenes, the evolution of a relationship before and after having kids, and the reasons she likes playing a character who can sometimes come off as a jerk.

A new season of Catastrophe comes out later this year.
