We all have our demons. The Rayburns seem to have more than most. With their storied, dynastic image of small business success and solid moral fiber, the Rayburns seem like the very picture of the American dream. But veiled beneath gentility and a respectable legacy lurk secrets so dark they could destroy the family reputation for good. With the family’s second son, a detective, as its protagonist and narrator, this critically acclaimed show fuses the family drama with the elements of an ominous television noir. Hear from Bloodline’s co-creator Todd A. Kessler about the genesis and development of this “family noir.”
