Netflix’s Director of Original Series praises the pitch for the new series.
The showrunners of the upcoming series “Wednesday”, based on the characters created by Charles Addams, were already legendary – they have Smallville in their curriculum and some great new classics too.
“When we first heard Al Gough and Miles Millar‘s pitch for ‘Wednesday’ we were struck, like an arrow from a crossbow, right in our hearts. They nailed the tone, the spirit, and the characters, but gave us a fresh way into this story,” revealed Teddy Biaselli, Netflix’s Director of Original Series.
But, as previously reported, the thing got exponentially and even more exciting…
“We then got the call that visionary director and lifelong Addams Family fan Tim Burton wanted to make his television directorial debut with this series. Tim has had a history of telling empowering stories about social outsiders like ‘Edward Scissorhands, Lydia Deetz (from Beetlejuice), and Batman. And now he brings his unique vision to ‘Wednesday’ and her spooky classmates at Nevermore Academy.“
