Jay discusses his writing process, how the “Something Like…” series came to be (sort of against his will, at first), and his role in bringing his story to the screen, alongside producers Carlos Pedraza, Tom Ly and director J.T. Tepnapa.
“‘Something Like Summer’ is in essence a story about an underdog finding his place in the world,” Jay said, “so it’s only fitting that both the book and movie have similar beginnings.”
