“Sometimes, things happen where you have the right product at the right time.” – Dana Bowling 

“At 26 years old, we got our first show, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. They're popular with younger kids. And so, I was the youngest script and casting director at 26 years old.” – Dana Bowling 

“I love a mantra, I love a quote, I've got a whole stable full of things that I'll pull out. But one that constantly comes to mind for me is the rising tide lifts all boats. I say this on a near-daily basis.” – Katy Widrick
