To start us off, here’s a warm-up question for you: What was your motivation, your interest in creating a new, modern version of an old show?

PL: Motivation? My father was a huge fan of the original show and I remember him watching it religiously when I was a child…. so the show meant something to me. I understood it. I also felt that there was still areas to explore, character for instance, that I could expand on, and in some ways add value to the franchise.

A large part of H50’s appeal is the onscreen chemistry between the actors. Is that something that right in the beginning influenced your casting decision or was it a fortunate “organic” development?

PL: I think we all knew from the beginning that if we didn’t cast this show right, we’d die pretty quickly. The relationships were all there on the page, but they needed great actors to really bring them to life… and we hit a home run with all of our casting choices.

Did you start out with a clear-cut idea of where the story was headed? Do you have something like a master plan for your entire story arc?

PL:I knew from the start what season 1 would look like, what the arcs were and how it would end. Of course those were was all just “ideas”, I needed writers besides myself to make it happen… and luckily ended up with a great writing staff that helped me bring those ideas to fruition. I also had some general thoughts in mind for season 2, but a lot of what is coming up is being built now in the writers room.

How did the individual looks/styles of the main characters develop? Is that something the actors came up with, or were there drawings and ideas beforehand?

PL:Creating a TV show is really a team effort and there is a great crew behind what you see every week. From wardrobe to sets, everything is very carefully decided upon. And of course we take our actors opinions into consideration since they know their character best.

H50 has been incredibly successful right from the start. What are the contributing factors for that success in your opinion?

PL: Casting and Location…. and good stories.
