“That was definitely a high-water mark”: Writers of ‘Human Resources’ Talk About Writing for the Show and Casting a Mysterious Star

Big Mouth lovers were amazed when they heard a new spin-off was in the works. And when Human Resources dropped, people were extremely happy to see a worthy spinoff to a much-loved show. Writers of both the highly acclaimed shows recently got together to discuss crafting a show with intricacies like no other.

Human Resources

Human Resources is an adult animated offshoot of the immensely famous series Big Mouth, which is about the filthy rituals of puberty that haunt preteens as Hormone Monsters and Shame Demons. The show broadens this universe by focusing on monsters while maintaining the sophomoric comedy and remarkable roster of voiceover appearances that made Big Mouth a cult favorite.

So to write such a layer show, you need equally amazing writers. And the minds behind the show are Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, Jennifer Flackett, and Kelly Galuska.

While talking about how Human Resources carries forward its predecessor, Kelly spoke about how they were able to create a wonderful world in Big Mouth.

And with the introduction of numerous other characters and emotions, they could really harness the beauty of Human Resources. She said, “We’ve found it is very easy to create more — there are so many emotions that we’re all going through every day.”

Many of the incidents in Big Mouth have real-life inspirations. So naturally, in Human Resources, writer decided to include some real-life gags.

When first writing the show, Andrew shared how they thought of Shame Wizard microwaving a fish. Andrew then explains that it had actually happened when someone in his office decided to microwave salmon.

Human Resource is the best of both worlds. It has just the right amount of precious cast members to create a connection with the show. But also has an equal amount of new voices that give the show its much-loved freshness.

So when they were discussing new additions to the cast, Levin said, “Well, we have an incredible cast, but when we got Hugh Jackman who agreed to be Dante, that was definitely a high-water mark.”

The Wolverine plays Dante, The Addiction Angel in the show. And the creators felt he was a perfect choice.
