“As soon as I heard that they were doing a musical crossover, I e-mailed Mark Pedowitz who connected me to Greg and Andrew. I immediately offered them my services,” Bloom said in a statement posted at BuzzFeed News. “As soon as they picked one of my song ideas, I hopped on the phone with my old Robot Chicken boss Tom Root and we brainstormed and, based on that brainstorm, I wrote up the song ‘Superfriends.’ I am so excited to contribute more to the upward trend that is musicals in television and film. Music can be one of the most amazing and efficient forms of storytelling and character development. Also, it was really fun to write a comedy song for two superheroes.”
Since Crazy Ex has surely wrapped for Season 2, would it be too much to wish to see Rachel Bloom as a musical companion for the Music Meister (Darren Criss)? In any event, her role in this crossover is exciting, and if you haven’t seen Crazy Ex-Girlfriend yet, you should give it a look.
