“Now, we didn't purposely say let's create a diverse group, but the group is really diverse. And I find that to be enormously advantageous because it's not superficial diversity. What color is your skin? What ethnic group are you a member of? It's diversity of different cultures and different belief systems and then trying to find ideas that reflect the combination of our cultural upbringings. I think too much about diversity in the United States has become extremely superficial. The most important aspect is that people think differently, not just, you could have two people who are white who t ..read more

"I've felt when two boxers get too close to hit each other / they hug each other, and not because they love each other / because when two people get too close / it becomes too hard to strike each other hard / not to smell the humanity on one another. It's confusing to see our reflection in our enemy's eyes / helps us start to recognize where our actions might be misaligned / with the identities that we've defined.  That was one where, as I started writing it, it's fun to be in an analogy, working through a phrase, unraveling and discovering all the new details of truth inside of a metapho ..read more

"I think what we really wanted to do with this show with mental health, with self-harm, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, we wanted to show really grounded representations of a deaf family, like 'we are just are there.' It's just they do American Sign Language. They just sign to each other. We're just there. So that was always our goal is to try to be as grounded and as authentic as possible. And I think where teens and even adults are, it's through the lens. We're talking a lot more about mental health out, on social media, out in the world, how important it is. We've all ..read more

“I guess removing the social license for the continued destruction of our planet has to shift. And this is where these social movements become really inspiring to think about it because it always just takes a small group of really committed people to shift a social norm. And I quote some research in the book, which basically says you only need about 25% of a population to shift a norm, and then the rest of the population goes with those progressive elements. So right now we're in this moment where we're basically saying No More Fossil Fuels. We are cooking the planet. This is what the world's ..read more

"I really feel that if there is something about art that I seek - I think people use art for many things - it's really some kind of a belief that we can transcend. I mean, if I try to kind of see it as some kind of a substitute for a religion. You know, religion tells us that there's something out there. There's somebody watching us, somebody doing something. And I think that for me, many times good art says there is something beyond our understanding that exists, and there is a way to get a step closer to it. Maybe not to unveil it, but we can get there.  There is something about bo ..read more

"I think Riches has all the hallmarks of the things I've worked on before in terms of complex, slightly subversive women. At the heart of it, it is negotiating power dynamics. And at the heart of it, there are two very complex and yet vulnerable black women, but I've always loved family drama shows and particularly family businesses, whether it's fictional ones or in real life. I think whether you're talking about the Hiltons, the Kardashians, or the Royal Family, the dynamics of how, where power and money and blood merge is just such a potent and combustible mix that I've always bee ..read more
