Here is the end result of my weeks of thinking about #ChernobylHBO. Basically, I am taking a pause to reassess the kind of stories I’ve been trying to tell.
For the last few years, I’ve combined working in Russian film with some stabs at Hollywood. Sold a pilot to TNT, etc. Being “Russian,” most of my pitches that gained traction had to do with Russia. Spy stuff, hacker stuff.
My assumption, supported by observations, was that writing Russia-set or -themed TV for a US audience required severe simplification at every turn. “Authenticity” meant first bending an idea into a familiar shape, then carefully dressing it with little insights.
