Golden Globe-winning actress Rachel Bloom is scheduled to be honored at Tuesday's Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting for her work in promoting West Covina, the setting of the CW's musical comedy "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."

Bloom will receive a scroll from board Chair Hilda L. Solis for the positive publicity she has generated for West Covina, which is part of Solis' 1st Supervisorial District.

The West Covina setting stemmed from a desire to do a "fish out of water story,'' the lack of previous series about 'Inland Southern California -- it's way different than other parts, it's really fascinating'' -- and because "a guy I used to have a crush on lived in Glendora and I would find excuses to try to go to Glendora all the time,'' Bloom, who was raised in Manhattan Beach, told City News Service in an interview last year.
