Tuned in for an entertaining

Justified Season 4 Episode 1 In early 2012, viewers tuned in for an entertaining history lesson with "Bomb Girls." The fictional miniseries followed several Canadian women who selflessly contributed to the war effort by building bombs in a Victory Munitions Cougar Town Season 4 Episode 1 Factory. The compelling, often-morose drama captivated audiences and will continue to draw people in when season 2 premieres on January 2, 2013 on Global. Today on the Etobicoke set, the atmosphere isn't so grim. Betty McRae (Ali Liebert) Pretty Little Liars Season 3 Episode 14 and friends are tearing up the floor with a fast-paced Jitterbug at a local club, The Jewel Box. "In this scene, Betty taught herself how to dance," says Liebert. "Gladys (Jodi Balfour) has probably helped her and she's done a little practicing Private Practice Season 6 Episode 11 in the rooming house. She's testing out her dance moves and she has a new dancing partner, but I can't tell you who Betty is dancing with. During that time in the war, the men were pretty scarce, so it was normal for women to dance with each other. Justified Season 4 Episode 1 Just maybe not as close as Betty likes to dance." With a musical theatre background, the dancing is second nature to Liebert, but new cast member Michael Seater ("Life With Derek") is off to the side rehearsing his steps. It's a jam-Pretty Little Liars Season 3 Episode 14 packed day, but actors Liebert, Seater, Balfour, as well as executive producers Michael MacLennan and Adrienne Mitchell, took time to speak about love, life and loss in the second season of "Bomb Girls." Why are period series like "Mad Men," "Copper," "The Borgias" and now The Lying Game Season 2 Episode 1 "Bomb Girls" all the rage these days? MacLennan: There's a pendulum shift. When we were pitching "Bomb Girls," it was very different. Basically, nobody was interested in period. It's to Global's credit that they went with it. But there The New Girl Season 2 Episode 12 was a sense period was old-fashioned. I think storytellers are drawn to period settings because the stakes can be higher. If you were trying to tell a character-driven drama today, we're basically OK. We have a measure of equality and safety Pretty Little Liars Season 3 Episode 14 nets around us. Of course, there's still racism and sexism, but it's not as large as the way it was when you go back in time. When you are mining a situation for conflict, for story, it's that much more available to you. Were you surprised by The New Girl Season 2 Episode 12 the positive reaction to Betty's lesbian arc? MacLennan: It was really important for me to tell the story of Betty. I promised people that it would be the love story of the first season, and I was right. Betty and Kate (Charlotte Hegele) were Private Practice Season 6 Episode 11 this great love story and there's a very special chemistry there. But it's a network show, it's an 8 p.m. show, so we're not pushing buttons. That's a good example of where period serves you. At that time, there wasn't language to talk about being gay or lesbian. What I wasn't prepared for was the loyal and passionate female fan base there is in young women Pretty Little Liars Season 3 Episode 14 who are excited to see stories about women on their own terms, solving their own problems and talking about things other than men. Of course, we have women who are in conflict and sabotaging each other,
