Judd Apatow worries about Peak TV quality control with over-extended showrunners
“A danger of the situation is a lot of people are over-extended and where’s the quality control?” he said of TV producers making multiple deals, in a chat with Variety. “It’s hard to make one TV show, and I don’t know how people do it.” He adds: “I have to focus on not extending myself to a place where I can’t do my best work because I need a deal where I have to deliver 11 series. That’s not a place I can create from. I feel like I wouldn’t do a good job. (Although) I could make 11 sh*tty shows.”
