The Fosters spinoff has a much sexier vibe and cinematic look compared to its predecessor. "We didn't set out to change the tone," says executive producer Bradley Bredeweg. "That wasn't the drive. It wasn't, 'Oh, let's do it differently.' It was, 'What are the stories that we want to tell? What's the world we want to explore?' and then it was, 'OK, what is the most interesting way to tell those stories?' That birthed the new tone, which is brighter and funnier and messier and sexier and dirtier. It's all of those things that, frankly, life is in your 20s." Fellow executive producer Joanna Johnson adds: "What's great about dealing with kids in their 20s coming into downtown Los Angeles is that they're creating their new lives. We really wanted the style of the show to really match that dynamic — to have that energy. We're doing a lot of interesting camera work that's untraditional and doesn't follow the rules of basic filmmaking. That's because in your 20s you don't really want to follow the rules."
