Go, Dog. Go! Interview Questions
In the video interview available above, I asked Adam a series of questions about the show. A little bit about the behind-the-scenes and also his thoughts about turning a children’s book into a hit series on Netflix!
How are you making this show relevant to today’s generation?
I asked since the books were inspired and created for an older generation, how are you making this show relevant to today’s generation? Adam shared how the great thing about this book is that it has a timelessness to it.
The fun part about it was incorporating the aspects of the book, however, you don’t have to know the book to appreciate the show.
What was it like turning this book into a series? How did you go about doing that?
As you know go dog go as a book doesn’t have the traditional linear plot and it doesn’t have characters with names. So it doesn’t have the some of the ingreidents that you would have in a show.
But it does have a very specific and quiet unique tone and humor and sense of surprise. For me it was trying to create that tone and how it would translate it into a TV show.
Also pulling in some of the things from the book like the party in the tree and trying to pull them in and make sense of them all living in the same space.
Are there new characters to meet in DreamWorks Go, Dog. Go!?
Yes, you have Tag as the main character with her best friend Scooch Pooch, as well as the Barkapellas.
Where did the Barkapella’s come from?
The Barakapella came from the desire to have music in the show and Adam loved how it wasn’t a show for the most part where characters burst into song like a musical.
I like that it came from within the world so the idea of characters who can only speak through song. Even though the characters were not in the book, they were inspired by characters from the booklike Lady Lydia.
Are there any Easter Eggs in DreamWorks Go, Dog. Go!?
Without spoiling the series, but Adam really liked working with his amazing team. Was that every artist brought such a level of detail to it. So every time he watches it he see’s something else he didn’t see the first time through. It could be a poster on the wall or background detail.
A dog at a carnival was in the background where she was checking her phone to see when she got off work. So without distracting from the main content they were able to bring reality to this world. So keep an eye out for artist touches in the background!
