It’s like, “Okay, let’s watch 201,” and we’ll do our breakdowns together, where we turn the page on 201, and we’re like, “Okay, what do we think? Where can we shoot this? Can we shoot this in real space?” If not, what do we need to build, if we need to build it? Are we building this as a physical set, or can it be a building as a virtual set or a combination of both? Is it physical to some extent, and then digital beyond that? of that?” I’m just trying to break each one down to say, “What’s the highest value for this, what’s the most sensible way that it meets the need for what we need it to be?” That process is happening now, which is great, and it’s really fun and exciting to be able to have Season 1 and behind us to find out what we felt worked there, things we wanted to refine more of, and how that impacts our approach for Season 2.
