Episode 4 – April 2021
Filmmaker Allen Wolf interviews Sheryl J. Anderson, the Creator and Executive Producer of the Netflix show, Sweet Magnolias. They talk about how she started as a storyteller, the way her life experience made her uniquely qualified to create this hit show, and how her faith has played a crucial role for her as an artist. She also talks about what’s important in her life and how she has been able to get where she is today.
On writing Sweet Magnolias, Sheryl explains, “We had a running joke in the writer’s room that we wanted to make the audience laugh out loud once an episode, cry once an episode, and then whatever they wanted to do in between was fine. But the running joke became that we wanted to do that to each other every day in the room and we laughed a lot together and we cried a lot together.”
Allen ends the interview by asking about the cliffhanger in Sweet Magnolias. “Who was in the car?”
