The show’s creator, Amy Sherman Palladino, saw Sutton’s Tony Award-winning performance in “Anything Goes” last year and told WWD, “There was something about her in that show. The next time I was in New York we had a delightful little lunch. Sutton is warm, funny and smart. I have absolutely no proof that this is going to work, but she is the only person I was interested in. This is the chick.”
