“Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof ripped network television at the Television Critics Association panel for his new HBO series “The Leftovers,” reports Deadline.com.
“We can all agree that cable is far superior to network,” he said. “I think that when you slow the conveyor belt down, Lucy and Ethel, the quality control goes up.”
He added, “The beauty of working with HBO is they say how much story do you got?” That frees him from creating “weeks of episodes that are not essential,” he said.
“Leftovers” is written by Tom Perrotta and Lindelof and is based on Perrotta’s 2011 bestseller, which is about the world three years after the Rapture takes 2% of the world’s population, the story says. The series is expected to debut this summer.
