As for the weekly schedule of the films, she explained: “I’m excited. I’ve binged a lot of television this year and it would’ve been nice to binge something new every week and know that this can grow throughout the weeks.”
Reflecting on what she’s been up to during the pandemic, she also said that she’s been “watching a lot of television” and “adopted a cat… that’s about it. Not a whole lot.” However, she said her hopes for 2021 are “hopefully to work a lot… Get back into things.”
