Madagascar: A Little Wild Interviews
As you can tell from the kids feedback they really enjoyed the show, and after watching it with them I have to say that as an adult I really liked how clean and innocent the show is. This perfect for the whole family to watch for the comedy, good feel storyline, and educational pieces that you see throughout the show.
Below is my video interview that I had with Executive Producer Johanna Stein and Co-Executive Producer Dana Starfield on certain aspects of the show. If you aren’t familiar with them:
Johanna Stein is an award-winning writer-producer-director-actor whose work has been seen on Amazon, Netflix, Comedy Central, The Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, PBS, BBC and all over the world. Though her background is in comedy, Johanna has also written about parenting, with columns like this one in the NY Times. Johanna’s bestselling book, “How Not to Calm a Child on a Plane” – a humor book about being a parent – was optioned by Will Arnett as a television pilot for CBS; and her viral video short, “Momhead” was featured in international media including The Today Show, The Doctors, and CNN, and adapted into “JojoHead” for the CW, the first-ever scripted series featured onInstagram’s “Stories”.
Dana got her start as assistant to Working Title co-chairmen Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. She attended UCLA’s Professional Program in Screenwriting, and shortly thereafter landed her first studio job, writing Disney’s Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3. She then went on to write on several other projects at Disney including an original musical feature called The Three Mariachis, freelancing on Sofia the First for Disney Channel, helping develop Descendants: Wicked World, and writing an original movie set in the world of K-Pop music for Disney Channel Original Movies.
