Tim Burton is dishing on what led him to his upcoming series Wednesday!

If you don’t know, the Addams Family-centric show is the legendary director’s first series that he’s directed. He also serves as an executive producer.

As for what drew him to the show, it was showing a different side to the central character, Wednesday Addams (played by Jenna Ortega).

“I grew up watching the TV series, and I also liked Charles Adams’ cartoons. His original cartoons were really inspirational to me. But what triggered me most was just the Wednesday character,” he shared.

“I feel like Wednesday. I’ve felt like Wednesday since I was a teenager, even though I was a boy,” he added. “The snarky, snide teenager has the same kind of viewpoint as I do, the same kind of black and white viewpoint.”
