Rob McElhenney’s credo has always been “make what you want to see.” It’s the advice the actor-writer-producer keeps coming back to in this inspiring interview, which spans Rob’s childhood in Philadelphia, the bit-by-bit process by which he became a TV creator and star, and the audition philosophy his fellow performers should keep in mind.

Best known as Mac on FXX’s long-running “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” which he co-created and co-produces with Glenn Howerton, Rob was and still is inspired by the format of classic sitcoms. Alongside Charlie Day and Megan Ganz, he is now the co-creator, as well as writer-director-star, of AppleTV+’s comedy “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet,” a workplace sitcom set in a video game studio. This episode is brought to you by AppleTV+.
