David Simon is the person responsible for creating The Wire; the best television show I have ever had the pleasure to watch. It showcased a great collaborative relationship between himself and HBO and he is the showrunner for a new HBO show called The Deuce which just began to air its second season.
The Deuce Season 2
Here is what she had to say on the specific topic of when she found out about the time jump that took place between Season 1 and Season 2 of The Deuce and what her character may have done in that time period:
“When I signed onto the project, I knew that the series would take place over three seasons and that each one would be separated by six or seven years. That was another piece of the project that really excited me, personally. And as far as having conversations about what Abby’s been up to the last six or seven years, that’s been the thrill.”
“The gift of the job is that the material has given us room to really improvise and decide for ourselves. There’s no written backstory and there’s no specific conversation, as to exactly what she’s been doing.”
“I’ve had to do that work on my own, and that involves a lot of research, a lot of watching, reading and experiencing of stuff, and trying to figure out for myself what has the last years looked like for Abby. Because the script has these benchmarks, I know if Abby is bringing in music aspects, that’s something she’s been doing for a while now.”
“What does that involve? Does that involve going to bars downtown, to going to different clubs to find musicians? Is it on the street? Those are all the questions and the answers that I had to find for myself, which for me, is one of the most interesting parts of my job.”
