Going against the grain people with a few brief facts about the development behind TAIM, so you’re welcome in advance… As to know me is to know it doesn’t take much for me to go on and what not.
– It wasn’t intentional to make Blake and Niles an odd couple, as it just developed naturally. The former is easy going and sleeps with beautiful women for work and fun. The latter is uptight and finds it awkward in dealing with the super sexualized field that is porn, especially advances from some of the most beautiful women in the world.
– In describing TAIM to friends and family, let alone potential fans, we almost always usually lead with the word mainstream, and say that word at least fourteen to twenty one times. The best worst is when they still don’t understand what this series is about and assume we’re simply shooting porn. Ironically, most shows today on cable and streaming are far more graphic in that regard!
– It’s easy for certain characters but not others to picture what they look like in your head before you even write their first line. For example in our mind’s eye, Valerie is a blonde with striking eyes who can command a room from just sitting in a corner . (Though we’re not married to hair color by any means.) Sierra on the other end… Honestly I’ve got nothing. Read the bio; she’s young and beautiful, but race creed and preferred Starbucks drink is up in the air! Same with Blake. Niles is played by me so yeah, and EMH is essentially based on an already existing character actor, and you don’t need to go far to see who.
So yes, answering questions no one asked, we know how to do it and do it well!
