Kenya has previously spoken about the importance of portraying marital issues in his series, reflecting on times he’d watch sitcoms when he was younger.
“When I was growing up, I never saw couples fight on the family sitcoms I loved to watch,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Subsequently, when tough times arose in my own relationship, I wasn’t prepared and felt so isolated and alone. Marital issues weren’t a part of the narrative that television told me was a ‘working relationship.’”
