How a "goth baker" Christine McConnell landed her own Netflix series, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell
As Eater notes, the "Instagram-famous baker/model/designer/actress" McConnell shot to viral fame three years ago when she decorated her parents’ Los Angeles-area home for Halloween by adding massive, spooky eyes and fangs to its exterior. McConnell tells Eater around 300 production companies reached out to her in the aftermath of the video, "and they all wanted to do a reality-based show. And I don’t really watch that stuff mostly — I mean I have a few guilty pleasures — but I’m much more into scripted TV and storylines, and things like that.“ She ended up partnering with The Jim Henson Company's Henson Alternative, which created kooky talking puppets that steal the show.
