While the leading lady may be Mrs Maisel, we’re particularly impressed with her co-star Alex Borstein, who plays Suzie Myers. Suzie struggles to find her feet in her career until her instincts tell her to take the plunge and go down the path of entrepreneurship, starting her own business as an agent. The new business owner experiences ups and downs, making some great decisions and also ones that she’s not proud of.
