stars Fran and is based on the events of her and Peter's post-marriage lives together, as it would've happened today and instead of the late '90s when they separated and divorced.The show returns for a new season packed with guest stars and fan-pleasing events. Peter Marc Jacobson: Fran and I took a vacation together to Paris after we were divorced, and we started getting into all these fights, and started going back to the way we were when married.[After couple of days] she wrote me back saying she called The Trevor Project and they really helped and [that she was] much better.
While based on your lives, not all on actually happened to you and Fran. A lot of pieces exist between us, and then we evolve them into something else, Caesar and Judy are people in real life.
Someone said, well Caesar is so stereotypical, because he speaks with an accent and he’s a gardener, but that is who he was. How did you go about selecting John Michael Higgins to play the character based on yourself?
A little girl who was bisexual got in touch with me on Facebook saying she wanted to kill her self, and I immediately had to think, what do I do?
I said please, please don’t do anything, I’ll give you a number to call, call them they can help ...
It’s been great, people stop me on the street and I get letters from people, such as men who are still in marriages or straight people who are still divorced and living together because of the economy.
It’s a universal problem, you don’t have to be gay or straight, you just have to have been in a relationship.That wasn’t the case, I was born in the '50s and I didn’t even know what gay was.In my neighborhood, everyone got married at 20 years old and that was it, there was no choice; that was what you did. As you said, you and Fran are both strong supporters of equality and LGBT rights.What organizations do you support and have been involved with?She said, you have to live your authentic life and be who you are, and I appreciated that and was very touched by it.
