EXCLUSIVE: INTERVIEW WITH EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, DARRIN MCCANN!
With 'The Super Teens' premiering in just one week, we were able to sit down with Executive Producer, Darrin McCann, to discuss spoilers, characters, and everything Super Teens!
VSGUIDE: What's your job for The Super Teens?
DARRIN: Well, my official title is Executive Producer. My job is to make sure everyone is doing their job properly. [laughs] No, seriously though I read the scripts and ensure that i's are dotted, and t's crossed. I also keep an eye out for continuity errors, as well as provide feedback on plot, and such. But in all honesty Brady is such a fantastic writer that I barely have to do anything. [laughs] I love my job.
VSGUIDE: How did you become a part of the production staff?
DARRIN: Well, before TST was picked up, Brady came to me and asked if I would do some beta reading. I guess he thought I did a good job because after TST's pick-up Brady came to me again and asked me to join the team, and I graciously accepted the role.
VSGUIDE: How's it like working with Brady?
DARRIN: Brady's great to work with. He's got a phenomenal work ethic, as well fantastic, original ideas. He's really easy to get along with, and takes constructive criticism quite well. And I'm not just saying all this because he's my boss. [laughs]
VSGUIDE: So, what's your favorite moment that's happened in the series so far? Why?
DARRIN: My favorite moment so far would have to Bright Day itself. It's the catalyst that has started this journey for the Knox triplets. It's also a pivotal event in the entire series. Everything that happens is directly related to Bright Day, and the discovery of what Bright Day actually is shocking!
VSGUIDE: Speaking of favorite moments, what's your favorite episode? Why?
DARRIN: I actually have two favorite episodes so far. I am a HUGE fan of 1.05 - Super Drunk and 1.06 - Super Mom. Super Drunk has some of the funniest moments, in my opinion, so far in TST. There is a hilarious scene with a phone conversation between Sara and her siblings that cracked me right up as well as interactions with Fred that were equally funny. I loved Super Mom because Debbie is thrown into the forefront of the story and she has to find a way to save not only herself but someone else, all without any super human ability. We really get to see Debbie as more then just a mom. Layers are added to her character in this episode and we really get to see who Debbie really is.
VSGUIDE: How about your favorite character? Why?
DARRIN: This is a tough one because I love all of them so much, but if I am forced to choose I think I would have to go with Sara. She's sassy, and prissy but also kicks some serious butt. However her BARK is worse than her bite. Pun intended. [laughs]
VSGUIDE: So, you probably know how everything plays out for this season, will people be shocked?
DARRIN: I sure do! [laughs] I believe that people will be shocked, I know I was.
VSGUIDE: What are you looking forward for fans to see?
DARRIN: Everything! [laughs] I'm really looking forward to... No spoilers from me. [laughs] I will say that fans can expect a lot of shock and awe with a side of kick-ass action and adventure. You're all in for a treat!
VSGUIDE: It's been said that 'The Super Teens' has a title that is very comic book-y and kid-friendly. What do you have to say about that? Do you agree?
DARRIN: TST is so much more then that. Comic Book-y sure. It's about teens that get super powers but the questions of how and why make it more. Kid friendly, why not, there is a lot of family values sown throughout TST, however there is a lot of dark stuff as well, that's not so kid friendly. I think the title is suitable because it tells the viewer exactly what it's about, Super Teens. [laughs]
VSGUIDE: One word to describe the show?
DARRIN: Super-fantastic... (From the dictionary of Darrin).
VSGUIDE: And if you could have one moment happen, what would it be?
DARRIN: Debbie getting a spin-off series called The Super Mom. All Debbie, all the time. [laughs]
