“‘Ptolemy Grey’ has been consuming me for 12 years, it’s a dream come true” (L. Jackson)

But getting here is incredible. They say that Hollywood is a place of dreams and this is a dream come true«.

The series connects in a very personal way with Jackson himself, who made reference to her late mother’s struggle with the disease: «If you have had this disease, like me, I know that sometimes it will be a bit complicated“, he admitted. «But if you stay with her [la serie]You’ll take a wonderful walk, through a man who lived a good life«.

Although the novel has moments of darkness and talks about issues that should not be taken lightly, the atmosphere in the presentation of the series was happy and relaxed. This was surely due to the pride that the whole team felt when they were finally able to see the culmination and the fruits of a project they had been working on for so many years and that they had seen being born.

Jackson commented that regardless of the viewers’ relationship with the disease, the series shines a light on it, and he sees the love behind the project as something that goes beyond the screen.

“I want African Americans to see that their stories can be told” (L. Jackson)

«I just hope people can look at this and say, ‘I know these people. That they saw something that is familiar to them. understand family dynamics“, he explained and added that, for the African-American public in particular, “I want them to see that their stories can be told; that things that are familiar to us are entertaining. People tell you they’re not, but they are«.

The most important message that Jackson wanted to send with the series was the idea of treat those around us with compassion. Do not forget those who little by little disappear from our lives, and remember that the important thing is to love and care for our elders in the same way that they loved us when they were here.
