A lot of the characters are based on family members.

Like for example, Uncle Clifford is a mixture of my real Uncle Clifford and my mama and my daddy.

Katori also revealed that she leaned on her extensive research in the world of stripping to make the show authentic, and it was important for her to give the audience a backstory on each character and make them relatable to humanize people who “we often times disregard or dismiss.”
