We have a full writers' room, and with something like 'MyMusic,' we've scripted it out with professional writers. There is some very basic improv from the actors, but everything is very to the letter, so it's easy to edit down to an episode. There are fun little things an actor might throw in there.
As a creator, I want my content to be where people can watch it.
From early on... we really looked at the Internet as a whole new way to provide storytelling and entertainment.
In a pre-YouTube world, and in the beginning of the YouTube world, it was more personality-based and centered around very simple content.
It's very rare for the Internet to have a successful narrative show like 'MyMusic.' It's really a case study for what is the future of the sitcom.
We are always taking a hard look at how life was in the past in coming up with interesting subject matter for our various series, and remembering how much I used to want an encyclopedia as a kid made me realize wanting a set is very unlikely for teens today, and that conversation would be interesting.
There's a new success model, and us and some of our peers are now starting to prove that TV and very traditional content also works on the Internet, specifically on YouTube, and it can rival television audiences and television production value. 'MyMusic' is proof of that, having a successful run and now coming back for a second season.
'MyMusic' is a great showcase of what we can do as creators on a modest budget when we're given the opportunity to put together a television-sized project, and hopefully, whether it's 'MyMusic' making that transition to television or having something sprout off from it, it's an exciting time to be a creator.
