We cherished the brilliant feeling of American sitcoms combined with the deep sense of unease the story had, and it was a very inviting problem to assist set that tone.”
“I grew up within the ’80s watching reveals from each decade on the networks all day lengthy,” Anderson-Lopez added. “Episodes from I Love Lucy, Brady Bunch and Household Ties formed who I’m and the way I transfer by way of the world. So this mission was a dream come true.”
