Discussing her character in the series, Hathaway told that the story goes around a character named Lexi.
"My character has a lot to learn that we're worth loving," she added.
On being asked how romcoms have shifted to TV and online series from the big screens, Hathaway said, "It clearly means there's still an audience for them."
She continued, "what gets them to the movie theater has changed. People have figured out these more intimate stories are worth staying at home. I'm grateful they're not extinct," said the Oscar winner.
Milioti who will be featured in the first episode of the show said the following episode is "beautifully nuanced" as her protagonist finds help in her doorman.
"They make a huge impact on each other, so much is unspoken which so beautiful. It's the energy in between them," added Milioti.
