Bryan Fuller interview about Wonderfalls dvds. An interesting (to me anyway) interview. Warning, it's on the suicidegirls website which is probably NSFW.

Wow, that's quite a juicy and revealing interview. Very forthright and honest. It's like reading a private conversation with gossip and digression into geekdom and everything. It's very fascinating. Thanks, Paul.
Agreed. In fact, that's one of the best interviews I've ever read.

Looks like MGM is building a reputation of being a difficult studio to work with. J. Michael Straczynski (creator of Babylon 5 and a writer on many of your favorite classics such as the original He-Man and She-Ra cartoons, not to mention Murder She Wrote, heh) had problems with Jeremiah when it also was airing on Showtime. Too much interference from the MGM, JMS quit after the second season. The show was intended to have a 5-season arc, just like Babylon 5. The network hasn't commissioned a Season 3, I assume the show is dead and it's probably better off since it wouldn't have its creator at the helm.
This is so revealing to a naive viewer like me, who never realized that MGM was the bugaboo. Previous rumors of troubles between Fuller and the producers made it sound like he was having problems with Showtime, not MGM. But the MGM thing makes much more sense. Because Showtime wouldn't turn a gay character straight (hello, 75% of their programming is nicely queer!), but MGM would do it in a heartbeat. I totally get that.
Yes. Great interview. It's rare to hear entertainment types sound like they're just being honest and having a conversation, rather than acting as though every interview is really an advertisement for a product. A breath of fresh air.
I don't know, but that's just the kind of interview you're *not* going to read in The Hollywood Reporter or LATimes. It's honest, as everyone above notes. It can't be put any better than that. And, I agree Kris, it's one of the best interviews I've ever read, and I include in that list the Paris Review talks with the big writers that I read many years ago. Ahem. The collected reviews, that is.
