“Folks is another story, much more dramatic. This is a fundamental difference between the new series and our previous comedy series loved by millions – The In-laws. All the characters in Folks were invented for particular actors, and I think it's pretty cool, because there is a good understanding for the director who will play the role, and the script is written according to in a certain way. In Folks we wanted to tell a complete story.
