Listen to the interview here:

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Bobby Lopez are living proof that two is better than one. Now available on Hulu, they have a newly created romantic musical comedy called "UP HERE", The talented and award-winning duo talk about their humble beginnings and how they crossed paths, all thanks to the BMI workshop. They share the underlying themes of "Up Here", which includes reestablishing relationships as we go through changes in life that they deeply relate with as a couple. Having the luxury of working together, they look back on their previous projects such as "Coco" "Finding Nemo" and "Frozen", and how sometimes their work is a reflection of their experiences and what they're feeling and going through at the moment. Having never worked in television before, the two talk about what the process is like and why it's been an eye-opening experience for them. Kirsten and Bobby also recall their time working together for WandaVision and why it's the most fun they've ever had working on anything. Ultimately, the power duo's success can be attributed to two things: the desire to keep getting better and to connect with people.
