“Obsession” with Shalita Grant and Charles Rogers

Dory’s obsession with Chantal lies at the core of all the drama and excitement on Search Party. But where does that come from? On the final episode of the podcast, co-creator Charles Rogers and actress Shalita Grant talk about Dory’s motivations, the show’s public obsession with her trial, and how we project ourselves on morally questionable people—both in real life and on the show. We also explore how Shalita approached playing lawyer Cassidy Diamond, and how the character—and her personal motivation to win the case, is far more complex than may appear on the surface. If you’re still curious about how Dory’s relationship with the topic of obsession comes full circle over the first three seasons of the show, we break it all down for you here. And be sure to tune in to the new season of Search Party —premiering tomorrow, January 14th, only on HBO Max!
