A Conversation with Master of None’s Kelvin Yu

kelvinyu

David, Heather and Adam sit down to talk about a number of topics with the very charming and funny Kelvin Yu, who plays Brian Cheng on Netflix’s critically acclaimed Original Series, Master of None.

Kelvin talks to us about his early experiences in the industry, working to evolve past the stereotypical roles that are often offered to Asian-American actors and how he came to be part of both the Bob’s Burgers creative team as well as appearing on a groundbreaking series with Aziz Ansari.

We also discuss how Netflix frees a show to take chances creatively, what it’s like to share scenes with Aziz, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe and Noel Wells, as well as the Omnivore’s Dilemma and it’s relation to the series.  We even find out which cast member was the first to inform him he was named the Guardian’s “Crush of the Week”.

We also talk a little bit about Kelvin’s plans for the future and the prospects of a Season 2 for this hit series.

An Interview with Narcos’ Zach Calig

narcosmap1

We are thrilled to have a chance to talk to Zach Calig, part of the creative team that brought you the hit Netflix Original Series, Narcos.  Skype was a little choppy the day we recorded, but the insights Zach gave us more than made up for the audio challenges.

We talk about the process of writing a show based on real life characters and events, how binge watching Narcos is like doing lines of cocaine, and what prompts the decisions to streamline historical events for an hourly serialized drama.

Zach gives us a view on what it was like writing Episode 7 “You Will Cry Tears of Blood”, the true impact of Pablo Escobar’s Avianca bombing, the kidnapping of Diana Turbay and why we don’t meet the Cali Cartel at the beginning of the story.

In addition, Zach gives us a preview of an upcoming project he’s working on “Of Kings and Prophets” for ABC and his experience writing for Zenescope’s Grimm Fairy Tales comic.

Zach can be reached on twitter @zachcalig
