What if the title of a television show doesn’t even tell the full story?
It’s been a common occurrence in Hollywood films, but what if you had to read the first episode before the credits even rolled?
What if it took three to five minutes for the film’s producers to explain the plot?
In the case of “The Jinks,” the answer is yes, but this time it’s not even the movie’s producer, it’s the show’s creator.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Real Time,” host Bill Maher revealed that “The Kinks” was based on a book by the late Christopher Hitchens.
But in real life, the author, Christopher Hitchen, was a prolific writer who made a name for himself as a novelist and critic, and he’s also the author of books like “The Godfather” and “Diary of a Madman.”
Maher said that the inspiration for the show came from the novel “The Sinner’s Code,” a book that, in the context of the time, was about a man who was convicted of killing his brother-in-law.
In the novel, the man, named Joe, is sentenced to death for the murder of his brother.
The book also has an epigraph from Hitchens’ “The Selfish Gene,” which is why the film team wanted to take inspiration from that work and bring it to life.
“I had the idea of bringing the ‘Sinner’s Gene’ to life on the show, because I think that’s the book that brought me to the realization of my dream of a show about ‘The Jinxes,'” Maher said.
Maher also revealed that Hitchens was a major influence on the script for “The King and I.”
He said that while “The Kidnapped” is based on “The Devil Wears Prada,” Hitchens told the story of his childhood growing up in Paris in the 1970s, and then later in New York City when he moved to Los Angeles.
“And I said, ‘Well, let’s have the story in Paris,’ ” Maher said, noting that he knew that the French filmmaker would take the story from his own life.
Hitchens also said that when he was writing the script, he “was very clear about the point of view of the character.”
The character of The Kidnapper is based off Hitchens, but the rest of the cast was inspired by a “The Prince of Tides” writer, according to Maher.
Maher said he had never met the author before, but he had seen a movie about his life.
He said he went on to read a biography of the author and realized that he was “a bit like a character in ‘The King & I,’ and I just knew I had to be there to play him.”
Hitchens said he was initially disappointed when he heard the name of his film, but eventually decided to give it a shot.
“In my mind, it was very much a personal movie,” he said.
“It was a story about me.
It was my story, and it had the same emotional weight that ‘The Prince Of Tides’ had.
It had the right amount of gravitas, and so I felt like I had a duty to try and tell that story.
And I felt that that’s what was missing.”
Maher joked that he thought of the film as a “true love story,” with the main character coming from his home country of France, but it eventually turned out to be about a family tragedy.
“What I didn’t realize is that he’s the father of my son, and that’s not a bad thing, I think,” Maher said of the family tragedy in the book.
“He’s just a father, so he’s got a responsibility to be good, and to be responsible, and a man.
He’s not the most responsible, but in his own way he’s a good father.”
Maher and “The Kids” co-creator Amy Schumer also shared some details about the film during the interview, with Maher saying that he had a “fantastic time” working with Schumer.
The cast also revealed how the story is set in Paris, where the film takes place.
“We were in Paris for six months, and the city itself is a bit different,” Maher revealed.
“The French were always quite good at taking advantage of their surroundings, so I was surprised when I went to the city for two months and saw that there were only four buildings in Paris that were built in the 20th century.
So we were actually surprised when we went to London for six weeks to shoot a film there.”
Maher also shared his thoughts on how the plot works.
“For us, it all goes back to the beginning of the book,” Maher explained.
“There’s this big, massive city in the Middle East, and there’s a lot of corruption, so we’re not talking about a place where you can’t eat, but people are really corrupt, and
