If [Containment is renewed for] Season two, are you hoping to keep it at 13 episodes per season?
Truth be told, I’d probably do two little eight-episode chapters of 16 [hours per season]. I do think you can handle a 16-episode season very easily if you can break them into two pieces, like they do on The Walking Dead or Breaking Bad. The difference is not waiting a year and a half between eight episodes like cable does, and get them all done in the same year. But who knows? I’m open to anything as long as I have time and the desire to do it. Right now that show is really exciting to me.
