Throwback Thursday: Playing Fact or Fiction with Jennifer and Matthew Holm

Early draft of SUNNY SIDE UP by Jennifer and Matthew Holm

Early draft of SUNNY SIDE UP by Jennifer and Matthew Holm

Travis: We had it all laid out.

The first Season 1 of The Yarn was supposed to be eight episodes. I made four. Colby made four. We were all set. But as we were listening to the tape of Jennifer and Matthew Holm interviewing each other (for episode eight) an additional episode emerged – one where we learn which aspects of Sunny Side Up were taken from the Holm’s real life, and which ones were created.

It ended up being one of my favorite episodes from Season 1.
