The Challenge of Returning to the World of 'Wet Hot American Summer'

Ben Travers of Indiewire scored an interview with the creators of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the Netflix original series that offers new explorations of the stories and themes beyond anything that could be contained within the 2001 feature's 97-minute running time.  

Travers asked show creators David Wain and Michael Showalter if it was difficult to put the project together with so much of the original cast very busy with other commitments.

"Getting the machine [up and running]," Showalter says, "was just a matter of contracts. There's a lot of infrastructure around mounting a production, that has to do with legal stuff. A lot of it is getting contracts and clearing rights."

"Especially," Wain adds, "when you're dealing with a previous movie that has been distributed. But, truthfully, it's the time between the network saying, "Yes, let's do it," and it actually starting. And then once it's actually starting, then it's just sort of normal puzzle-making."
