April 30, 2023, ‘Ghosts‘, Joe Wiseman, Joe Port, Rose McIver, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Brandon Scott Jones, Rebecca Wisocky, Sheila Carrasco, Devan Long, Asher Grodman, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock and Román Zaragoza attended the CBS’s “Ghosts” FYC Event at The Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles for a special screening followed by a Panel moderated by Michael Schneider.
- “We decided it would be super satisfying to answer the question on Alberta’s death. We didn’t know who it was going to be until the last few episodes.” – Joe Wiseman on writing Alberta’s murder storyline.
- “Thank God she has Jay… she is very lucky to be able to live both lives and still live in the real world.” – Rose McIver about Sam’s relationship with Jay.
- “We have this huge orchestra of talent… and Jay is like the guy with the cymbals in the back waiting for his moment to chime in.” – Utkarsh Ambudkar
- “We all enjoy making the show. Its fun to be on a show that is part of a weekly conversation.” – Joe Wiseman on getting to produce 22 episode seasons.
- “It gives you a chance to go down some rabbit holes… I like to go online and see what questions people have..” – Joe Port about about getting so much time in each season to develop storylines.
- “It’s nice that Pete is one of the most recently dead. He has the ability to connect with his family in a very odd way.” – Richie Moriarty
- “What I think is really cool though, is that as a character, it took him dying to actually start to live.” – Brandon Scott Jones about Isaac’s character growth.
- Rebecca Wisocky discusses Hetty’s growth as she has bonded with the other women. “I think she has had the most radical character development over our first 2 years. She was not a great person in real life, but she’s had a journey of female empowerment and sexual awakening.”
- Asher Grodman talks about all of the relationships in the house. “What is so fun about season 2 is that we are all essentially children trapped in this house, we can’t go anywhere else and Rose and Utkarsh are our parents.. So now we’re all dating each other.”
- After talking to Asher Grodman about never getting to wear pants on-screen, Devan Long jokes, “How come nobody ever asks the rest of us how it feels to act with someone that never wears pants?”
- Román Zaragoza is glad that the show addresses native land acknowledgment. “Talking about serious issues through comedy is the superpower that we have as a TV show.”
- Sheila Carrasco enjoys getting to work with Devan Long in physical comedy. “Our characters kind of speak the same language. I think they have a very strong pull and connect on a deeper level.”
- “We get to tell compelling and deep stories about American history in 22 minutes.” Joe Port on the opportunity of adapting this story for American audiences.
- Danielle Pinnock says, “the beauty of the show and its characters is the history we get to capture each week.”
