Reatchlous talked to Variety about how Master Moley got started as bedtime stories for his daughters which he would then write down. He said:
I tried to make them funny and relevant, and slightly educational, but more like amusing and fun. And they just became a big fixture of their childhood.
It’s got diversity; it’s got community; it’s got different nationalities; and it’s got humor all the way through it.
Master Moley By Royal Invitation will air in November with the series and follow-up special launching next year.
