In this featurette, Justin and Paul discuss the inspiration for the Fox family and how this television adaptation came to be.

Paul shares, “There are some lines that are not in the book that are in the series that Justin has channeled from family history…In a way, it has come full circle. I was writing about my family and now a member of my family is in it.”
