Handmaid's Tale creator Bruce Miller has worked in TV for years, but this show presented a singular challenge. “Usually the books you adapt stink,” he says. “This is a great book. So you really want to capture that feeling, that greatness, on TV. ... I was you. I didn't want to see the ruined version of this either.”
We got to speak to Miller about the show this week, for a special bonus episode of The Red Center. He talks about working with Margaret Atwood, where the show will go in season 2, and the joys of writing profanity.
