When it comes to streaming services, you often hear the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video cited at the forefront of the conversation.

‘They had access to all of this material’

The series is inspired by writer Jesse Barron’s article of the same name that was published in Esquire, who recently chatted to Jesse about the project:

“I was actually pretty involved, I think, for a mere journalist… the writers had all my notes: my interviews, my transcripts, my actual physical handwritten notebooks. They had access to all of this material that I had cut from the article or that my editor at Esquire, Bobby Baird, tried to wisely [edit down] so that we could actually tell the story in 7000 words.”

He added: “And so stuff that Bobby and I got rid of in the original article has a second life in the show.
