Speaking further, Givens admitted that the directing experience helped her find her voice because she learned how to be more confident with her skills and abilities.

When asked how the COVID-19 pandemic affected productions, Givens noted that rather than spending four days for their last scenes, they ended up spending only two days. To her, this was only possible because they were fully prepared on set.

Givens is most famous for appearing in the 1986 ABC sitcom, "Head of The Class," and during her appearance on "Today," Givens confirmed that she would be interested in returning for a reboot if it ever happened.

"A Murder to Remember" is expected to premiere on August 2, and there is no doubt that Givens brought a golden touch to her new role as a director.
