Siblings…most have them, and if they don’t, most want them. But what about those times where having a sibling is just downright…interesting? If you stop and think back on your life growing up with siblings, there’s a good chance that you’re going to relate to the new hit show, “Home Economics”.
With the first episode premiering today, I’ve been certain to stock up on popcorn, snacks, and cleared my calendar so that nothing is going to stop me from tuning in.
If you’re curious to know more about this new TV show, you’re at the right place!
Why You Need to Tune In to the TV show “Home Economics”
Not only do I love the actors who are in this show but I love that it’s using comedy as a way to be relatable, too. This new show airing on ABC focuses on three siblings, who might be related but are VERY different and are at very different points in their lives, too.
Recently I was able to be a part of a Q&A session with the actress, Karla Souza, from the show, and below are a few questions and ideas that were discussed.
There are several instances where Spanish is used as a form of communication or “jabs” towards siblings – how much of this was written into the script or was it improved on the spot?
There is actually a lot of improvising that goes on in the script. A lot of Spanish is used and peppered throughout so it’s fun to see what gets added into the final produced show. It makes it fun and authentic.
What is the true dynamic of the cast like?
It’s fun because everyone has a different sense of humor. Depending on the cast member, each person brings something different and useful to the table.
During our breaks, we’d actually tailgate and sit out in chairs and just talk to one another. We truly enjoyed each other’s company off-screen as well and never got tired of one another.
How hard is it to switch gears in the episodes to go from comedy to serious?
We’re so lucky to have such a great director that would help us with these transitions. Since the episode is just 20 minutes, it’s a lot of direction to handle in a short amount of time and this is where we listen and trust in the advice given.
There are a lot of different stigmas and taboo topics that are brought up quickly in the first episode. What is the overall feeling of that?
With the year that we all had, it’s important to address, which is done but also in a way that it combines the comedic aspect with a message at the same time.
As you can tell, this show is going to be a hit – I have no doubt! Make certain to tune in and catch the first episode airing on ABC.
The dynamics and differences portrayed between the three siblings will have you belly laughing and wiping away the years at the same time.
You may just find yourself picking up the phone to razz your sibling a bit after this as well!
