(especially with Brian Fuller having a hand in production?)
Very much so. I was confident with HBO too, but less so as the development process went along, and HBO wanted more and more spelled out and explained for the people who weren’t following, and everything possible put into the first script, so was relieved when it stopped there. I was lucky that the executives I’d been developing it with still had faith in it and me, and that’s one reason why it’s been so much fun talking to all the platforms and networks who wanted it. I’ve love spending time talking to Bryan Fuller, and, more recently, his partner in crime Michael Green. They get it. And Starz seems to get it too. So yes. There’s always room for things to go wrong. But, yes. Confident.
