Disney invited me to Los Angeles with all the expenses paid, my opinion is personal.
Check out what the creators and executive producers of the ABC TV series Kevin (Probably) Saves the World told us!
On my trip to Los Angeles we had the opportunity to visit ABC Studios to watch and tweet the live episode of that day's Kevin (Probably) Saves the World series, which runs Tuesdays at 9:00 pm CT on ABC Television Network. Episodes are also available via streaming on demand.
We had a very interesting Q&A section with the Show's Executive Creators and Producers, Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters.
Kevin (Probably) Saves the World is an entertaining comedy, with some family-friendly drama, starring Jason Ritter (son of John Ritter), as Kevin Finn, JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Amy Cabrera, Kimberly Hébert Gregory as Yvette, Chloe East as Reese Cabrera, J. August Richards is Deputy Nate Purcell, Dustin Ybarra is Tyler Medina and finally Beaufort's India is Kristin Allen.
On a perilous path of despair, Kevin returns to his childhood home in Texas to meet his widowed twin sister, Amy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), and his teenage niece, Reese (Chloe East). It's a forced return, he and his family have become estranged over the years, and Kevin has no hope that something will get better.
But a number of fantastic events, including a meteorite landing near the house, lead Kevin to meet a heavenly guide, Yvette (Kimberly Hébert Gregory).
Yvette offers Incredible News to Kevin: in every generation, there are 36 righteous souls on Earth whose mere existence is to protect the word. Kevin, he tells you, is the last of the 36 fair. Humanity has been thrown into crisis. Without the 36th, the world will begin to lose the only thing that allows us to persevere through the ups and downs of life: hope.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, creators and executive producers of the series, told us about Kevin (Probably) Saves the World:
Tara Butters, one of the show's executive creators and producers, told us that she likes to watch the series with her children, in fact this was one of the goals, to make sure that every chapter of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World is familiar.
When we asked him where the idea of making Kevin (probably) saves the world came from, he told us that they were inspired by how unhappy people were the election year, regardless of whether you were on the side of one political party or another.
It seemed that people needed something that came from a good place and reminded you that good deeds add up, like a chain in which if you do something good, you can inpiratol someone else to do a good thing as well.
Michele Fazekas, also executive creator and producer of the series, shared with us about "metanoia" a concept she learned while working on the show's history. He told us that metanoia is a theological term, which means, to see the world through new eyes, literally. And the concept that a person cannot change the world, but there is something that happens and transforms when you see the world with other eyes, that in fact, if it changes the world.
Something like that is what happens with Kevin, when he decides to see the world differently, the world is different.
About music he told us, that they have two people, a music supervisor and a composer. Plus ABC let them have an orchestra to record live and that makes a big difference in the sound.
In today's chapter (Nov 14) you can see:
KEVIN suddenly has another heavenly being besides Yvette: David "Dave", who wants to join Yvette who has her reservations when she tries to join her to try to reconcile Kristin and her mother, under the very challenging circumstances.
