“It is International Women’s Day, so what we want to do for that episode is to have it produced by a female, written by a female, directed by a female, and the entire cast will be female, including all the background artists,” she revealed.

The episode is also set to have “almost an entire female crew.”

There are currently two female producers and one female executive producer working on the soap.
