MADE FEATURES PHOTO CREDIT: Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic WHO RUN IT? In an exclusive interview with MADE, Insecure Showrunner, Prentice Penny shared his journey to running the show. MADE By Kris D. Williams MADE: What helped you get focused as you were working on building your name in the industry? PP: One thing was my wife. She was like, “It’s fine that you’re writing here and there, but you’re not acting as if you’re a professional writer. I know you’re not getting paid for this yet, but you need to treat your time and your resources like they’re precious and valuable.” For example, I’d get up during a weekend day, this is before we had kids, and I might wake up and fool around. Then I’d look up and it’s like 2 or 3 o’clock once I started writing. I wasn’t treating time right. MADE: And then kids came into the picture! The time management lesson probably intensified, right? PP: You know, I really appreciate it now - being a father of three and I’m married, doing different shows. Time is the only thing. I can’t make more time. Money can’t buy you more of it. It is what it is at the end of the day. We only get 24 hours of it. I understand now | 48
