Interview with Melody Fox and Andrew Orenstein

We sat down with creatives Fox and Orenstein to discuss what went into creating Circuit Breakers.

“I’ve always loved anthologies, the kind with a closed-ended story each week, becausein each episode there are new characters who have new goals and problems, and you have a resolutionby the end of your story. It’s like watching a mini-movie. I’m a science fiction and genre fan, so I loved the idea of doing Twilight Zone for kids.”

– Melody Fox

“We certainly had a lot of discussions about making sure that it seemed realistic in terms of what can happen fifteen years in the future. That we weren’t doing one hundred years in the future, with flying cars and stuff.”

– Andrew Orenstein
