Margaret Atwood: The money I've made from Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale "wasn't a lot"
The author explained in a column for Wealthsimple that “The Handmaid’s Tale television series was not my deal. I sold the rights to MGM in 1990 to make a movie – so when the TV rights were sold to Hulu, the money went to MGM. We did not have a negotiating position. I did get brought on as an executive consultant, but that wasn’t a lot of money. People think it’s been all Hollywood glamour since the TV show happened, but that’s not happening to me. But book sales have been brisk, so there’s that.”

Why do Amazon, Netflix and Hulu keep canceling alternative comedies?
The recent cancelation of risk-taking and niche comedies like One Mississippi, Lady Dynamite and Difficult People may be a sign that the streaming services are evolving in how they select shows, says Josef Adalian. Also, Amazon wants to differentiate itself from Netflix by offering more mainstream fare. “Sure, die-hard fans of Lady Dynamite or The Get Down will deeply miss the shows, but it’s unlikely many will cancel their subscriptions as a result,” says Adalian. “While all Big Three streamers continue to up their overall content spends, they really don’t have unlimited budgets — particularly as they move into other genres, like talk shows (Netflix, Hulu) or live sports (Amazon). If a series isn’t clicking on some level — viewership, awards, pop-culture buzz — the fundamental rules of TV are going to kick in.” ALSO: Streaming TV is facing a problem with subscribers canceling when their favorite shows are over.

The Handmaid’s Tale boss: “You can’t avoid the influence” of President Trump in Season 2 -- the #MeToo movement will also be addressed
In fact, showrunner Bruce Miller is worried about drawing too many parallels with the Trump era in Season 2. “Our writing staff is a news junky bunch, very politically active and thinking a lot about politics, very engaged in the world,” he says. “Most of (the writing staff) has children and they think about what the world will mean for them. It's a big influence on the way you think about everything in your life, which definitely bleeds into the story-making process. But America has its own issues that don't necessarily align with the issues at play in Gilead, or even a pre-Gilead America. You have to be careful not to draw too many parallels.”

Elisabeth Moss: The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 is a few shades darker than Season 1, “if that’s possible”
“So much of this season is about motherhood,” Moss said at the TV press tour. “We’ve talked a lot about the impending birth of the child that’s growing inside of her as a bit of a ticking time bomb, The complications are really wonderful to explore. She does have the baby, but it gets taken away from her. She can’t be its mother. It makes for good drama.” ALSO: Margaret Atwood took to Twitter to respond to backlash over her #MeToo op-ed.
