Is Everything Now based on Ripley Parker?

Yes and no. Ripley said that Everything Now began with her own experiences, but was developed and expanded when she began collaborating with writers, producers, and consultants on the show.

"It expanded so much more than I could have ever imagined, and the story became so much richer," she told Tudum. "Everything Now became a really, really wonderful melting pot of many different stories and experiences — and I’ll never reveal whose story is whose."

On creating the character of Mia, Ripley said she avoided bringing any of her own "baggage" to the character. "It was important to me that I had a healthy perspective on everything I was writing… and wasn’t steering the show in places that it shouldn’t go or that didn’t feel natural," she said.

"So I tried to try keep a healthy level of distance between myself and my life and Mia and her friends."

Everything Now is streaming on Netflix now.
