A genius of Katori Hall!
Cutlery Hall talks about incorporating real events into the P-Valley plot
Jenny Bolden, senior content director at BOSSIP, chatted with P-Valley executive producer Katori Hall before the season 2 premiere, asking about her decision to include the actual events of 2020 in the show’s plot.
Katori Hall told BOSSIP, “I feel like our characters, although they are fictional, people think they are real.” “They are very related. Pink’s characters have really tattooed themselves in people’s minds and hearts. I felt as a black writer, as a woman, how could I not implement the elements of our time? Storytelling is a way for us to come together as a community to find ourselves, see ourselves and talk about it. I have to do this because we are living in the moment – the COVID of all these things – the racial injustice of all these things, we can use this story to find a way forward and we can use this story to reflect what everyone has. Going. “
Katori Hall speaks of Mississippi and Audi’s character growth
Hall also talks about how some of Season 1’s characters will see their roles expand significantly in the new season, as Shannon Thornton’s Screen Time series has grown in each episode since her humble introduction.
“Katori Hall has no small role in the universe,” Hall said. “You can have one episode in a row and then you can arc the whole season next season. “It simply came to our notice then. In the pilot, he was like a line, but towards the end of the season he practically took possession of Pink. So for Season 2 I really wanted to use the rest of the cast rather than supporting the main characters. “
Hall gave a slight hint of how this would happen with Lil Murder’s manager Wade, who sees his small role as director of a funeral home greatly expanded in the new season.
“You think, ‘Oh we’ll see her once in a while’ and through episode five you think, ‘Oh Chile, Woody needs some panties!’
