India Eisley’s upbringing prepared her for ‘I Am the Night’ role

It ended up being India Eisley's good fortune that her parents – musician David Glen Eisley and actress Olivia Hussey – waited until they were in their 40s to have a child. Because they both grew up in the 1960s, Eisley was exposed to the politics, fashion, music and art of that time. That gave Eisley an appreciation for the era that made it easier for her to slip into the role of Fauna Hodel in the TNT limited series "I Am the Night."

The inspiration behind TV’s creators

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. –– Did you ever wonder where the creators of TV shows get their ideas? Some of them are adapted from books like "Game of Thrones" or "The Handmaid's Tale." Others are American versions of foreign shows like "The Masked Singer" and "Jane the Virgin." Still others are inspired by their families like "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "The Goldbergs." But most of them rise from the fertile minds of the creators and are triggered by a variety of events.
