Director Statement

Although I had a full script for "Get Crackin", I approached it as more of a skeleton script since I had cast extremely talented improvisors. I did have the guests in each episode perform the majority of their scripted copy for at least one take, but I also did several takes where I let them improvise wherever they felt needed. Tina and Loretta's roles were almost completely improvised as I felt their relationship would be much more natural if they just worked off each other and the guests.
