Upon reading Harrison’s less-than-kind comments, “Honestly, I was thrilled. I was so excited because I was like, ‘Oh, my God, they noticed us!'” EP Marti Noxon told TVLine with a laugh at a Paley Center event for the series on Thursday. “His dislike of the show was not surprising to me, so it didn’t hurt my feelings.”
Not to mention, “any press is good press,” Noxon added. “But in this case, it was particularly fun. I’m like a nerd. The captain of the football team is talking about me, even if he’s saying, ‘Hey, nerd!'”
The drama’s stars are equally pleased to have the extra media attention. “We’re just happy people are talking about the show,” Shiri Appleby said.
And by dissing UnREAL, Harrison “admits that he watches it,” Constance Zimmer pointed out, to which Appleby responded, “It’s a win-win.”
