I would like to surprise audiences with original stories rather than anticipating what they're comfortable with. Preferably disarm them with comedy while challenging them with drama. As a showrunner, it's important for me to create a space where you can be dangerously truthful and unafraid with other creatives. Finding those people is one of the biggest challenges, but collaboration is not only essential, it's also the most fun part of the work.
