From Russia with Love – Katharine Heller

We came up with the idea for From Russia With Love from all of those awful reality shows that kept popping up about families with multiple children. Especially after the Jon and Kate fiasco, we thought it would be fun to focus on a couple with a ton of kids who say they do the show “for the children” but it’s clearly about them. In our show, the 8 adopted Russian children are represented by Matryoshka nesting dolls. Some people have said it’s great that we chose inanimate objects because the children on TV are literally treated like objects. Really, it’s because I couldn’t afford to hire any child actors, but I’ll take that.

I’ve been working with my comedy partner, Calen Lang, for almost 10 years on improv and sketch, but about a year ago we started filming our stuff. Our first online collaboration was in the widely successful response to the asinine hate campaign from the National Organization for Marriage. (Our vid can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F40LRG9wDWY)

I’m really excited about the response to From Russia With Love, and it’s a great opportunity to work with some incredible comedians like John Knefel from John and Molly Get Along, and the hilarious Lynne Rosenberg, with whom I’ve collaborated on many projects before. They play our neighbors and that episode will be out next month. And our one biological son who we just call “The Biological” and kind of hate is played by the incredibly talented Devin Ratray, who was last seen saving the day as Bobby in the sci-fi action thriller, The Surrogates. Or that’s what he says, I haven’t seen it yet.
