- “It’s just as easy to be funny while accurate… We try and take from actual history” Joe Port said about representation on the show.
- “The script made me laugh on the page. I knew the premise worked because of the UK show. I love this ensemble and the people I get to work with.“ Rose McIver said about what drew her to the script.
- “One of my favorite movies of all time is Clue. When I read the script I was like ‘oh my god, this is the closest thing it can ever get to Clue.‘” said Brandon Scott Jones.
- When Danielle Pinnock first read the script she thought of Alberta “This woman is a delicious diva and the other ghosts are kind of gaslighting her. I was like sign me up, get me my costume!”
- “Alberta needs a man! And it NEEDS to be Pete!” said Danielle Pinnock.
- “The more I lean into the flaws of Hetty the more you all seem to find her adorable! She takes 3 steps forward and 5 steps back” says Rebecca Wisocky.
- Rose McIver shouts out Utkarsh Ambudkar and his ability to ignore the Ghosts while acting “Thank goodness he’s as good as he is!”
- “I’m very lucky to be Jewish and to play a Jewish character that is not about being Jewish” said Asher Grodman about seeing himself in Trevor.
- Did you know: the story of Trevor’s Pants was inspired by Joe Port’s father, and his experience working to rid his fraternity of hazing.
- “I’ve just been very grateful for the whole process” – Román Zaragoza on working with Joe Port, Joe Wiseman, and the creative team to develop Sasappis’s backstory.
- Román Zaragoza said about working with his dad “The scenes were so touching because I swear we’ve had these exact conversations before… It was a dream”
- Sheila Carrasco said #GhostsCBS is a dream job, “I came out to LA with the dream of being in an ensemble comedy”.
- Danielle Pinnock said Devan Long is a comedic genius and always makes her break. He says “It’s not improv I just don’t know who I am as a person!”
- The cast agrees: Brandon Scott Jones and Devan Long together make everyone break!
- “We’re going to delve more deeply into Alberta’s murder and we’ll learn more about some of the ghosts that live at the Farnsbys” Joe Port said of the upcoming Season 2.
