Secrets of the 'List'

The Ex List TCA Panel

MISSED CONNECTIONS:"The Ex List" actors Alexandra Breckenridge, left, and Adam Rothenberg join executive producer Diane Ruggiero to the show's protagonist's search for true love.

Executive producer Diane Ruggiero has a secret plan for “The Ex List."

“List” follows Bella Bloom (Elizabeth Reaser), who is told she must find a husband in one year or she’ll never find true love. The catch? She’s met the guy before.

But, after one year, what’s next for the show? Ms. Ruggiero said she has a plan after one year, but was incredibly mum about what it is.

However, she was pretty open about other aspects of the show, including writing styles.

A critic asked if CBS balked at a lot of the vaginal-based humor in the show, including discussion of merkins, or pubic wigs.

“I actually let my vagina write half of the script,” Ms. Ruggiero said.
