Police shows are a constant in our day to day. From The Rookie to NCIS. So we looked to Matthew Tinker to tell us what makes The Calling different. And his answer sums up the show perfectly and is the reason it won us over in the first place, as does his description of the show.
The Calling is an adaptation of the first book in Dror Mishani’s literary saga and Matthew Tinker confessed to us if he read the book before filming the series or if he decided to create the show a little more freely. Likewise, he also tells us about the necessary research before filming in terms of locations.
Thanks to Matthew Tinker we know a little more about the work behind a show even before it is filmed. It’s a necessary job for the creation of any show or movie but it’s one of those invisible jobs that few see.
Adapting a book is never easy, see Outlander or Bridgerton. As for the fans, the advantage is that a producer leaves with a loyal fan base for his/her show but the disadvantage is that the fans are demanding, as we should be.
Matthew Tinker tells us more about what it was like for him, when producing The Calling, adapting an already-written story compared to the work he did on a regular series.
Matthew Tinker has clear ideas and it’s obvious that he loves his work. Part of the brilliance and care with which The Calling is made is thanks to him because he puts his heart into every project he does. We love talking to him!
