FX’s Breeders is a British-American production that stems from a creative collaboration between Martin Freeman, Chris Addison, and Simon Blackwell. It explores modern day parenting and is largely based on real world experiences of its writing staff. The series miraculously avoids the cutesy parenting cliches that befall so many other series. It’s tough, it’s fair, and it’s often extraordinarily funny.
Here, in an interview with Awards Daily, Breeders executive producers Chris Addison and Simon Blackwell sit down to discuss the growth experienced over Season 2, particularly in the way Freeman’s Paul interacts with his children after entering therapy at the end of Season 1. They also talk about what they drew from their own lives in working with Freeman to create the series.
Finally, the team talks about the potential future for Breeders, which recently received a third season renewal.
