“You go beyond the normal spectrum to get quality. We’re hopeful that we’ll over time make a great Bollywood show, make a great anime show. It might not be that that Bollywood show is for [Showtime CEO] Matt Blank. It might be that it’s more segmented, but again the internet let’s you do that. I think that’s the key in that enablement. But as Matt knows, making these shows is very challenging and I’m sure we’ll have issues over time,” said Hastings during the conference.
