'Beauty and the Beast' Executive Producer Brad Kern Interviews


'Beauty and the Beast' season 2 Executive Producer Brad Kern will be back at the helm for the show's third season while Sherri Cooper and Jennifer Levin (season 1 EPs) are being credited as 'consultants'. Interesting. In honor of this bit of 'EP' news, here's a collection of several of Kern's interviews expressing his vision for the show's second season and beyond...

blog bb promo 05

From: Zap2it  [November 25, 2013]

"...[Brad Kern] revealed that Cat shooting Vincent was the "northern light" for the first eight episodes of the season and will fundamentally change their relationship going forward. "It's huge. We try to make a very big point in this episode that she's tying the relationship into his decision," Kern says. "As a poker player, Catherine was all in saving Vincent, coming at a pretty big expense to her. The question she's had to ask herself over the course of these eight episodes is, 'How much do you keep trying before you're sacrificing too much of yourself?' Shooting him really is his choice as far as we're concerned. How it will affect them is fundamental. His inner battle was, 'Am I man or beast?' and he's chosen to go beast. We'll explore that for a while and we'll explore how Cat and Vincent deal with each other after she shoots him..." To read the complete interview CLICK HERE


From: TVGuide  [November 25, 2013]

"Kern: You can't put two people together and keep them together because there are no legs to a series if you do that. So, the challenge was, "How do we build a show that might last five years?" To really reward the epic romance. [you have to] challenge that relationship ... and you have to overcome obstacles to test the relationship to see if it really is worthy of being together. [They have] an epic love and they're meant to be together, but [we're] asking our audience to go along with us for the ride to explore what happens when a relationship comes together too fast. Separating them for all these very emotional, practical and moral reasons will help them learn more about who they are separately, and the plan is to make them stronger as individuals and to ultimately find their way back to each other stronger than ever..."

From: KsiteTV  [January 16, 2014]

"...With "Who Am I" being a theme for Season 2, might Kern and the show's writers have a plan for Season 3 if there should be one? "I have the question to ask, which is 'Who Are We?' Because if Season 2 was all about 'Who Am I' as far as separate individuals finding themselves separately and coming back together again: Look, it's no big spoiler that Vincent and Cat get back together again. It's called Beauty and the Beast. But the point was to take them apart to bring them back together again to make them stronger, separately as well as a couple. Therefore, Season 3 now becomes 'Who Are We'," he declared...." To read the complete interview CLICK HERE


From: TVLine  [January 17, 2014]

"FOUR'S A CROWD | Of course, "shared destiny" or not, Vincent and Catherine are far from alone in taking this journey. Cat, for one, has ADA Gabe helping her lick her personal and professional wounds. Don‚Äôt Die on Me"Like Vincent having to explore his beast side, Cat has to explore this 'Mr. Right' who understands what she's gone through, because he used to be a beast. She'd be stupid not to, especially after what a jerk Vincent was to her." (Will this would-be couple kiss? "You'll have to wait and see," Levin hedges.) Vincent meanwhile has fellow beast Tori at his side — for now. "As he explores the season-long question of 'Who am I?,' he's got a woman who can connect to him in a way that Cat never can," Kern notes. Just don't count on Tori staying around through to the season finale. "That's not a season-long arc," Kern makes clear..." To read the complete interview CLICK HERE


From: TVGuide   [January 19, 2014]

"Brad Kern: The design of this part of the season is for Cat and Vincent to grow as individuals. They came together so fast for kismet, epic reasons, but that's not a long-term relationship. You have to figure out who you are separately which is painful, but also comedic and adventurous. You got the perfect guy (Gabe) right there who's handsome, rich, working hard to make his amends, trying to be protective of her. It's hard for a woman who's been dealing with a beast who's made some really bad choices not to look over at the perfect guy that every mother would want their daughter to marry and give him a second look. It would be inauthentic if we didn't play that. Does that mean that it's at the ultimate expense of Vin and Cat? Well the show is called Beauty and the Beast so we'll end up supporting that..." To read the complete interview CLICK HERE

Gabe "perfect"?! Should have learned from Krisitn Kreuk's old show (Smallville), its NEVER a good idea to have your heroine hook up with the 'Villain' of the story (reformed or not). There is a risk of character assasination...the audience never forgets ;)

I'll be honest, 'Beauty and the Beast' second season has been a bit of a 'hit and miss' for me...so far (The season is not over, there are still six remaining episodes left to air). Let's hope the show overcomes what some media outlets have named its 'sophmore slump' and get their creative juices flowing once more for an exciting third season! Yay!

'Beauty and the Beast' returns June 2nd 9/8c on The CW!

'Real Style' Kristin Kreuk Interview [Winter 2014] 'Christmas Traditions'


A festive Kristin Kreuk interview from 'Real Style Magazine' (Winter 2014) revealing some sweet family holiday traditions.

bb kk real style magazine winter 2014

From: Real Style Network

"On holiday traditions:

We always did a Christmas tree, decorated it and did the Santa Claus thing. My favourite part about that time of year was that we didn't have to go to school and that was amazing. We always had a nice Christmas dinner, which I liked, and it always included my favourite foods. I don't eat turkey anymore, but back then I ate turkey and it was so yummy. Our holidays were very mellow with a lot of book reading and listening to music and hanging out.

Favourite part about the holidays:

I always get together with my family and spend the time with them. My birthday is during that time as well. It is a family time, but it also feels like a time of introspection. It's cold and you aren't going outside a whole lot, so it's a time to go inside and reflect upon this past year." ~ Kristin Kreuk (Real Style - Winter 2014)

'Beauty and the Beast': The CW 2014 Midseason Schedule


The CW announced their 2014 midseason schedule revealing 'Beauty and the Beast' will be taking a short hiatus after March 10th. What does this mean for the show's chances of renewal? Well, it seems its all still up in the air. During last week's TCA presentation, CW president Mark Pedowitz stated 'Beauty and the Beast' will return sometime in May to finish out its current season and that no decision had been made about the show's future yet. Let's cross our fingers and toes that things start to turn around quickly for the show and those live U.S. rating numbers start going up, up, and up!
