Hard NOC Life: ‘Detective Pikachu’ Writer Dan Hernandez

This week on Hard NOC Life, Keith is joined by Dan Hernandez, one-half of the screenwriting duo behind Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.

Keith and Dan have a wide-ranging conversation about the tricky process behind adapting a video game franchise like Pokémon into a well-received live action film. They also discuss creating Netflix’s Latinx reboot of the classic Norman Lear sitcom One Day at a Time, being a nerd of color in Hollywood, the pros and cons of nostalgia and fandom, and why people will never fully grasp the beauty and wonder that was 1600 Penn.
