Sex/Life is about to come into your lives! On Friday you will discover what this daring, transgressive and sexy show has to offer – which is a lot – and, after our interview with Sarah Shahi and Margaret Odette, we had the pleasure of interviewing showrunner Stacy Rukeyser about the show and female POV in sex and love. Ready?
Here we go!
We chatted with Stacy Rukeyser about the challenges of bringing this story to life and about her vision, her take on why we had to see this story, why we had to take it off the page of the book and show it on our screens. We also wanted to know what Stacy wants the fans, the viewers, to take away from this story when we see it.
When we see a good show or a good movie we always learn something. One part, a lesson from that show stays with us and we were curious to know what Stacy Rukeyser hoped that lesson was, what it was for her, what Sex/Life means to her and what scenes marked her the most.
Stacy Rukeyser is a real sweetheart. It was not easy to bring this story to our screen, knowing that she was going to face a challenge and not only in terms of history. Talking with her, we had the feeling that she knew that this show was going to be criticized, because a female character who lives on her own terms and explores her own desires is always criticized but that was precisely why she had to do this.
Because it’s important.
We love the way Stacy Rukeyser talked about this story, it shows that it is important to her and that she is aware that it is a story that she had to tell. The way she talks about this project is inspiring and her fondness for the story is felt every second on the show. We promise you that.
And here ends our interview with Stacy Rukeyser.
