The main character's first name, "Michael", is an unusual name for women. The name was suggested by former showrunner Bryan Fuller
, who has a tradition of nontraditional names in his previous series (notably Pushing Daisies
(2007) and Wonderfalls
(2004)). According to producer Aaron Harberts
, the name is also an homage to female columnist Michael Sneed and to Michael Steele
of the Bangles. Another actress with the first name of Michael is Michael Learned
, who is well-known from the long-running series, The Waltons
(1971). See more
