The film is inspired by a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and award-winning journalist Tom Junod. In the story, a cynical journalist begrudgingly accepts an assignment to write a profile piece on the beloved icon and finds his perspective on life transformed.
The script first made the Hollywood Black List in 2013. Tom Hanks signed on to star in the film in early 2018.
