"There’s that kind of art where you know that it’s good and you should feel good about being there but on a Saturday night you’d rather stay home and watch New Girl. We wanted to make something that makes you think “I’d rather watch that than watch New Girl.” Just something that, if it comes down to it, it isn’t something you do because you fee like you should or you need to but you do it because it’s so much fun, that it’s great entertainment.
