Perfecting the oldest art form
Most anthropologists agree that storytelling is the world’s most ancient art form. Every person has a story. Every single one of us 7.6 billion humanoids on earth could, with the proper time and resources, write an epic tome about the comings and goings of life’s journey. If that doesn’t make you feel sonder, I don’t know what will. As producers, we must be detectives, psychologists, and anthropologists in order to investigate the right stories, hash out how they’ll best strike a nerve with our audience, and unearth what makes each story special. Hopefully this expression of storytelling, the world’s oldest art form, can bind us together – even in the toughest of times and silliest of shows. After all, both Rush Limbaugh and John Oliver have plugged Game of Thrones.
