"In theater, it’s us against the problem," she said. "We all come into the room knowing there are going to be problems, and we all know that we’re going to solve them together," Grant said in an interview for The Los Angeles Times. "In TV, the relationship to problems is, ‘Whose fault is it? Heads will roll!’ Nobody wants their head to roll. It takes forever for people to solve problems because nobody wants to take responsibility." After her departure, Shalita Grant founded Four Naturals, which caters to people with Type 4 hair. The actress also made the rounds on the Netflix horror-comedy series Santa Clarita Diet as Agent Tess Rogers, as well as TBS/HBO Max's Search Party.
