Director and co-writer of Doll & Em, Azazel Jacobs, was interviewed this week by Pop Matters about his work on the series, which completed its run on Sky Living last week.
In the article Jacobs talks about how he first got to know Dolly Wells and Emily Mortimer, how the writing and directing process worked on Doll & Em, and why he chose to make the show and TV series rather than a film.
As he explains: “First off, I was watching TV being handled the same way as movies, with the same director, but also with the same intentions, same ability to go from dark to light…But I also wanted to take advantage of doing slices, instead of like on a film where you have to have transitions from one scene to another.”
Jacobs also talks about the dynamic between the two co-stars, echoing what Dolly said to us in our interview with her a few weeks ago, by saying: “I really wanted it to be called Doll & Em, because I wanted to credit their friendship, the friendship that allowed them to do things like this. I think in order to do things like these, the relationship has to be very healthy.”
