Danielle Pinnock, one of the many breakout stars in the ensemble of CBS' hit comedy Ghosts, joins us on the podcast and chats about her experiences working on the series, sharing that she was actually a replacement for the initial actress cast as Alberta, and how she is the total opposite of her character.
