The Morning Show showrunner noted that the character is sort of like a Diane Sawyer, and she happens to be Alex's longtime rival.

"You've got to believe me when I tell you this character was worth getting on a plane for in the middle of a pandemic," Julianna told EW about her upcoming role. "She's a woman who has been through the fire and back and made it out alive."
