KCRW's THE SPIN-OFF: "Wayward Pines" Executive Producer Chad Hodge
On the latest edition of KCRW's The Spin-Off, I've posted audio from an interview I did last month with Chad Hodge, who developed Fox's new drama "Wayward Pines." We spoke at an event organized by the Northwestern University Entertainment Alliance.
We talked what drew Hodge to the story and how he decided to structure the show -- each episode ends and the next episode begins in the same moment. And what’s more, Wayward Pines reveals most of its secrets by Episode 5 -- and unconventional move indeed. For Hodge, "Wayward Pines" has been a labor of love, from the moment he first encountered the book three years ago.
