Here is a colorful description of the network development and production process by comedy veteran Jeffrey Klarik, co-creator with David Crane of Showtime’s new comedy series Episodes. The two previously created and executive produced the short-lived CBS comedy The Class: When Crane told him he wanted to go back to work, Klarik’s immediate reaction was “no.” “I said the only way I would do it is if we could go someplace where we’re under the radar, and not get pummeled like we did last time, I felt like a puppy in a clothes dryer. It was torture. Let’s do this, but let’s go to England where they let you do what you want.” — Diane Haithman, Deadline’s TCA coverage.
