We're joined today by prolific showrunner and creator Neil Cross and re-recording mixer / supervising sound editor Ron Bochar to discuss their new series "The Mosquito Coast." The show tells the story of a grueling journey of a family on the run and it turns out the production was just as challenging. We discuss some of those challenges (and how they overcame them) along with some insights into how they approached the source material, as this version of the story goes in a very different, but interesting, direction.
"We would take an approach that was completely the opposite of what 'The Handmaid's Tale' did, where they started with an adaptation of the novel – what 'Big Little Lies, I guess the same thing – you start with a novel and then expand the world. So we're starting in the expanded universe and we are on a journey to 'The Mosquito Coast.' So our destination is still where we are headed in terms of the story."
— Neil Cross, Creator of The Mosquito Coast
