Faith’s ex dragged his heels for many years on the subject of having children.
As she shouted in episode 1: “Thank you for wasting my best child-bearing years, you piece of shit!!!”
Annaliese Kirby stars as Faith, and Alan Dronek co-stars as Kevin.
"Who is this man that I married?"
Hindsight is always 20/20, so it's easy to be critical of these characters.
Didn't they discuss the subject of having children before marriage? Isn't that what everyone does? Well, you'd be surprised. Assumptions are a dangerous thing.
And why did Kevin marry her, if he had such looming anxiety about the financial responsibilities of parenthood? Maybe he didn't want to lose her. Maybe Faith figured he would "grow up" once they were actually married.
Even if Kevin's salary hadn't been cut by 40%, might he have finally gotten on board with raising a family? Hmm...not likely.
"The whole no-sex, no-sleep, changing-diapers, losing-all-your-money thing has never sounded appealing to me."
I was able to film Annaliese in the suburbs during peak foliage, and it even started to drizzle as we got some quick b-roll shots in the park (perfect for the mood).
Alan’s Harlem apartment is a classic long thin railroad layout. If there was any budget for locations/production design, this is precisely the kind of place I would have secured(!)
