TV DRAMA WATCH: Fringe: Interview with Exec Producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner

by Lynn DeVries on February 14, 2011

Once again, the executive producers for FOX’s hit series Fringe sat down to answer some questions about this week’s new episode of the show. Exec Producers J.H. Wyman and Jeff Pinkner are very friendly to talk to and at times seem to even finish each other’s sentences. But they tackled many questions with good humor and without giving too much away. Be sure to watch this week’s episode of Fringe when it airs on Friday at 9/8c on FOX. Here’s how the conversation went:

... Q: Obviously, it seems like two of the main characters, Peter and Olivia are sort of unraveling at this point in time, Peter more so than Olivia. Are they going to sort of get worse before they get better or what can you tell us about that?

Jeff Pinker: They will get worse and better. I don’t think the value won’t be good or bad. It’s going to be more complicated than that. Since Olivia returned and their relationship sort of shattered and they’ve been trying to pick up the pieces, they’ve been getting closer and they will continue to, but the problems that they’re dealing with are going to continue to complicate.

So it won’t be as simple as, “Hey, now we’ve put our relationship troubles to bed and we can be a couple again,” or, “Hey, now we’ve dealt with the problems of our universe and our relationship is taking a back seat.” The two are going to be—we’re throwing a whole bunch of things at them including the consequences of the episode that you haven’t yet seen that we’re talking about now.

J.H. Wyman: We’re always trying to get deeper, more complex emotions because we find that’s a really rich area for us to investigate in. There are so many facets to a real relationship, and these are incredible circumstances that they’re going through, but we try and make it as deep as we can. So you’ll see a whole bunch of shifting still to come in the entire rest of the season...
