Rachel Shukert, a producer and writer known for her work on “GLOW," received the first book as a birthday present. She's now the showrunner of the series, while "Broad City" vet Lucia Aniello serves as a director and executive producer.

Author Ann M. Martin launched the book series in 1986 and she's been involved with the Netflix series, story-wise, from the beginning. She even gave Shukert a signed copy of “Little Miss Stoneybrook ... and Dawn” during production.

“It’s definitely for today’s viewers,” says Martin. “But I think it still retains all the parts of the series that young kids fell in love with 35 years ago.”

“When I saw them all together for the first time, that was one of the top five moments of my life,” Shukert says. “Maybe ahead of my wedding, but after having my son.”
