Everything flows more or less normally (including nervousness) until Rachel suddenly disappears… «To increase our combative side, to create tensions between us, the authors wanted us to play dodgeball (a kind of dodgeball, ed)” explains Claire Danes. Continues Eisenberg: «For the same reason, they advised us to write a secret diary as if we were our character, to create overlaps between fiction and reality. In this way we codified what one loved and hated of the other, it was useful to understand why the relationship between the two protagonists ended». The series is the television adaptation of the novel of the same name by Taffy Brodesser-Akner, who also serves as an executive producer.
