Annabelle Attanasio and I had a really funny time talking about what the real relationship between Bull and Cable is.
Very early on she winked at me and said, “I think I’m your daughter,” and it was like,”Oh God, wouldn’t that be weird, if nobody knew that? My experience on was that we built a show that was a dystopian drama airing Tuesday night at 9, and then in the second year we were an 8 o’clock Freak of the Week, chasing monsters.
It’s very controversial, and it shows you her real toughness, but also that emotional disconnect that she has. The key thing to me is that this is a show about human behavior and understanding it as much as you can. ” couldn’t be a more relevant question to ask, and it doesn’t just come down to black hats and white hats.

In the pilot, it was important to have Bull connect with that young kid and get emotional, and then at the very end where the woman [juror] sticks it to him with the crazy s–t she says. And then in doing the series, it’s more about finding out that Bull can be fun, he can be incredibly self-destructive, he’s contrarian sometimes.
