Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman talk ‘Making it’ with Deadline

Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman talk ‘Making it’ with Deadline

Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman were interviewed by Deadline to talk about ‘Making It‘. They discussed the positive side of the show, how they came up with the idea, teased the upcoming Season 2, and much more. Read the interview below!

Comedic powerhouses with incomparable rapport, Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman recently ventured into unfamiliar territory with Making It, their first unscripted series. Spearheading the project through her Paper Kites shingle, Poehler’s pitch for the show was beautiful and succinct. “I think she said, ‘We want it to be a hug of a television show,’” Offerman recalls.

Hosted and executive produced by the Parks and Recreation alums, NBC’s crafting series centers on incredibly talented individuals working in various disciplines, who share a penchant and a gift for making intricate works of art by hand. A breezy and good-hearted reality competition series, with little actual emphasis on competition, Making It was crafted like any of the works on display—with a lot of thought, hard work and heart.

From Poehler’s perspective, the show was exciting because it felt unique, like “its own animal in the world of unscripted.” A craftsmen himself—who oversees a Los Angeles woodworking collective, in between other jobs—Offerman brought a lifetime of experience to the table, and found the project equally stimulating, approaching Making It with a specific mission in mind. While engaging in “tomfoolery” with his longtime friend, he wanted to illustrate the magic of crafting, and its considerable value —not only to the individual, but also to the world at large.
