If you didn't already know, I am madly in love with children's literature. That's why I am so thankful that I have children, so I don't look odd when I'm reading Dr. Seuss or The Hobbit or Junie B. Jones.
I've always loved stories such as Peter Pan, Mary Poppins, and of course more modern kid's books such as the Harry Potter series. But you know what I've never liked? CSI television shows. It started off with just one show -- then they spun off with CSI Miami and CSI New York, and some CSI Navy show or something. And I thought it was a ridiculous amount of over-kill worthy of being lampooned.
So, that was the origin of CSI:Neverland.
So far this has become my most popular show -- mainly because I full-on embrace silliness. And I had such a fun time creating the Peter character -- this obnoxious, fun-loving man-child that has unlimited energy. I've had the pleasure of watching several schools perform the play -- and each time, the director did a brilliant job of casting the right kid to play the lead role.
