Theater is still a medium which attracts young writers. You'd think that it would be all over by now, with television and film. But it's not.
I never thought that I would be so attracted to television, but I don't think gigs like 'Dexter' come along too often.

I grew up in Greeley, Colorado, in a house without a television set. I was a very nerdy kid: I used to play 'astronaut' and eat bouillon as astronaut food. We also had tons of books.
I was a massive fan of 'Twin Peaks.' Massive. I don't know how any of us grew up in this age of television and weren't astounded, and saying that, I'm still shocked that that was on network television.
I want to make movies and pieces of television and pieces of art that crack everyone's assumptions.
