What a cool concept for a TV show. There was a lot of back-and-forth on this one because it had to be right to appeal to the audience. I was up for the job.
In case you didn’t know, there is actually such a thing as an Accidental American. And, while it’s a pretty hot topic outside the U.S., it was a pretty genius move to take the concept and turn it South of the border into The Accidental Mexican. I was given some background, some notes and a few other bits of info and I went to work writing the synopsis and making edits to the rest of the document as necessary.
