Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome Talk Creating ‘Another Period’, Research and the Writing Process
Comic-Con: Another Period follows the lives of the obscenely rich Bellacourt family and their many servants in turn-of-the-century Rhode Island in this historical satire about narcissistic aristocrats and the poor souls in their employ.
The stars and creators, Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, came to Comic-Con to chat about their new Comedy Central show, bringing along stars Michael Ian Black, Armen Weitzman, Paget Brewster and Executive Producer Jeremy Konner.
In the video, Leggero and Lindhome chat about their writing process, the research they did and how they equate that time period with the real housewives and Kardashian’s. Riki also tells a dirty joke, mention how lip-syncing is hard and what they really think about the Kardashians.
Here’s a bit about their writing process:
Riki Lindhome: Oh, we had a writers room.
Natasha Leggero: We had, I think like four writers?
Riki Lindhome: We wrote the pilot alone but after it got picked up, we just hired the funniest people we knew and then got to spend two weeks in a room with them making weird jokes.
Another Period airs on Comedy Central on Tuesdays at 10:30pm
