A Discovery of Witches - A Chat (feat. Jane Tranter)

S2 BonusJane Tranter, co-founder of Bad Wolf Productions, and the British super-producer behind the likes of “His Dark Materials,” “The Night Of,” “Succession,” and (listed last, but certainly NOT regarded least) “A Discovery of Witches,” agreed to a sit-down with us; we discussed all sorts of things regarding the production of ADOW Season 2. From the challenges related to COVID-19, to her overall vision for the series, we covered a lot of ground. Yes ... we even asked her to drop hints about Season 3. SHE DID!

Here's how one of the show creators explains their reasoning:Jeff Greenstein: "When Marta & David & Jeff & I did 'Dream On', we used to spend a lot of time thinking about titles, because they were on-screen at the top of each episode. On "Friends", we decided that was a waste of time. We figured, why not name each episode after the thing that people will ostensibly be talking about around the water-cooler the next day?"
