Last summer, Headland offered some insight into how they handled the series (see full interview over here):

How Hedland Approached Assembling The Helpers Writers Room: “First of all, I really wanted people who were different from me. I certainly didn’t want a room full of people who strongly agreed with me. Not ideologically, but technically – people of this type have different writing styles or I was interested in different things, all that Kind of stuff. But there was a certain intent, in terms of putting together a room that felt like people I’d never been in a room with before, if that made sense. I don’t think I could go much further, but like, ‘Oh, I haven’t This experience so far, and because I think it’s strange that I haven’t had that experience yet.”

Having worked in the industry for more than a decade and being in two book rooms, I feel like the demographic of rooms, it’s not something you actively consider. For example, in Russian Doll, we ended up having a room made up of women only, but I don’t know if that was something we said in the introduction: “We’re going to hire women only.” I think when you have a dictation like that, you close your mind, again, to people who will challenge your own artistic view. Mostly what I was looking for were people who I felt could do great script, number one. And then in the job interview, he really talked to people who had different life experiences than I had, and who had different connections to Star Wars than I did.

What I also learned about mapping my room was that everyone’s fan base was very different. Nobody has the same experience with Star Wars. There were people like me like them later in life [Dave] Filoni’s assistants. I literally had one writer who was like, “I’ve never seen any of them before. I’ve never seen any Star Wars media. And she was texting me before we even started the room, she was like, ‘Luke and Leah are brother and sister, what…?” [Laughs.] And that was pretty cool because I would really love to know from someone who isn’t totally into this fan, what do you think of the show we just made? So while she did her due diligence and did a lot of basic work and research, at the same time, she was someone we would talk to and say, ‘Well, if we take all sorts of connotations from it, and this is a Star Wars version of X, what does it mean to you?’ She’d be able to give some feedback. : “Well, I kind of wonder what’s going on with this character. And in this scene, I wonder why so-and-so doesn’t say this.

So this was what I really wanted – an energetic conversation between me and my book, not a room full of people that would automatically agree with what I was saying. Which is a good thing sometimes. Sometimes it’s good that everyone likes my show. It’s not Star Wars, but I think a lot about it [Jean-Luc] Picard and the way he’s going to use his crew and say, ‘What do you guys think? Any suggestions? What should we do next?’ And kind of listening to the debates and the kind of Socratic conversation that would result. I wanted to put the room together that way. It also means hiring people who aren’t necessarily as ardent and ardent fans as I am when it comes to the Star Wars stuff. It’s kind of weird that you’re the one who says, ‘Well , at 325 BBY,” and everyone was like, “What are you talking about?” “Wait, I’ll send you a link.” Everyone said, “Does this have to be someone else doing that?” Why does the viewer do that? And I’m like, “This is a picture, this is what it looks like.”

For me, this kind of thing is a lot of fun, because I also played some Star Wars RPGs. And this is my favorite version of Star Wars, Star Wars where you can make your own Star Wars. So when people like you, what’s your favorite movie? What are your favorite media? I’m like, “I just really like RPGs.” For me, that’s what Star Wars is, is the ability to walk into the universe and start playing around. If you can’t do that with the movie, TV show, comic book, feature book, or video game, I’m not sure you did what you need to do as a Star Wars creator.

Why the ‘Mystery and Thriller’ universe series ‘Star Wars’ fits George Lucas’ vision: “We all follow in George’s footsteps. He’s a deep devotee of film, and not just the medium of film, but the history of the film and the way the film was used, and all the different genres that the original trilogy infused is something no one else can do. He was a believer in ‘film like an undertones’ poem,” So that it only makes sense that people doing their side stories, their own series, or their stand-alone situations.It makes sense that they’re kind of taking on one aspect they might be interested in, or taking inspiration from and injecting it into their content.

When you watch his original trilogy, you can kind of pick out all the different references, all the different things he pulled from. And then there’s a kind of gestalt of how to put everything together that’s a lot bigger than just the reference, which is what happened in the ’90s. There were all these references that are given and acknowledged. It’s the same with being online – we either saw a clip of it or we watched the movie. Whereas he, someone like George, had to be a stubborn and ardent admirer of the art of cinema, in order to pick cherries the way he did.

In a way, that’s why this happens. I don’t know for sure, but if I had to guess why a bunch of indie characters and the series ended up looking like we’d only move into that particular space or we’d be practicing this particular genre, which we know inspired George. This also applies to ideology. I mean, that’s funny, because a lot of the comments I’m going to get – and I use the term comments very lightly – but when I use social media, the comments are “don’t make Star Wars political”. I’m like, “George Lucas made it political. These are political movies. War is, by nature, political. That’s just what it is. It’s really what he was interested in talking about and looking at and researching. So it’s kind of impossible for him to tell a story inside of his being that has nothing to do with it.” The characters have to see it outwardly reflected in everything that’s happening in the galaxy at that particular time period in which it’s happening. You know? That’s something else we inherited from him as well, and we hope to keep thinking about the work, we hope.”
