Kick tells New Idea he began writing the show back in 2019 but didn’t complete it until after the pandemic. 

Describing the six-episode series as being “extremely ambitious,” Kick says they took “on a lot” to get things right. 

“There was a moment, the beginning of the fifth week, where I got to set, and the entire prisoner of war camp had flooded,” he recalls. 

“We were a foot underwater and thinking, well, we can’t shoot, so that day was a very difficult one.”

Kick says juggling his many hats has been “difficult” but “liberating”. 

The Looking for Alibrandi star doesn’t hold “crazy expectations” of himself, but admits to being a “people pleaser.”

As for what viewers can expect from C*A*U*G*H*T, Kick tells us the show is “provocative and a bit ballsy,” and dares to tread on “territory that people are a little bit afraid of.”
