CS Video: Home Before Dark Interviews With Hilde Lysiak & More!
ComingSoon.net got the opportunity to chat with Home Before Dark co-creator and executive producer Dara Resnik, executive producer Joy Gorman Wettels and Hilde Lysiak, the 13-year-old investigative journalist whose life the series is based on. Our interviews with the trio can be viewed in the player below!
Home Before Dark is inspired by the life of 11-year-old Hilde Lysiak and will follow the young girl as she moves to a small lakeside town with her family and unearths a cold case that the town and her father have worked hard to keep buried.
Lysiak is a child reporter in Selinsgrove, PA, who received fame two years ago when she reported on the murder of one of her neighbors and received criticism for being such a young reporter covering a grisly crime, to which she’s defended herself by pointing out not only how dedicated she is to journalism, but also to the fact she had appropriate quotes and sources for her story.
In addition to Brooklynn Prince and Jim Sturgees, the series will also star Abby Miller (The Sinner), Louis Herthum (Westworld), Michael Weston (Psych), Kylie Rogers (Skin) and Joelle Carter (Justified).
The series is directed and executive produced by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians). It is also being produced by Anonymous Content (Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot) and is created by Dana Fox (Ben and Kate) and Dara Resnik (Castle) with Fox and Resnik also serving as showrunners.
Home Before Dark premiered on April 3 to very positive reviews from critics and audiences alike for its intriguing central mystery and the performances of its cast, namely Prince in the lead role. The series is available for streaming on Apple TV+ now!
