As Mike Rianda and Jeff Rowe were writing the story for The Mitchells vs the Machines, they realized that all of the people they knew who inspired Katie Mitchell were queer.

In discussing this with LGBTQ+ members of their crew, the decision to make Katie open about her queerness was obvious.This Netflix sci-fi family comedy follows the Mitchell family, which is based on Rianda’s own family.

Katie Mitchell (Abbi Jacobson) is an aspiring filmmaker with a dream to go to film school and has a contentious relationship with her father Rick (Danny McBride), who doesn’t understand technology and is dismissive of her interests.

In a last-ditch effort to save their relationship, Rick takes Katie and the rest of the family, his wife Linda (Maya Rudolph) and son Aaron (Rianda), on a cross-country road trip to drop Katie off at school.
