The trap in Hamlet is he’s the most passive of Shakespeare’s characters. He’s not a Richard III, not out there taking a lot of action. It’s a lot of asides and soliloquies where he’s wrapped in angst, and that’s not a very interesting character.

Noel Gallagher
Being in the industry, I’ve seen many situations where someone will get the call from the network where they say ‘You guys have 5 episodes to wrap it up.’ Then all your long-term story arcs gotta get wrapped up in five episodes because that’s how many episodes you got left.

Gayle King
It’s easy to get wrapped up in the season-to-season business, but to have real longevity in this field, you’ve got to always maintain your point of view and what makes your brand unique. Your business is always going to have ups and downs, but there needs to be a certain consistency.
