I know my audience, and they're not people that the studios know anything about.
Hollywood is finally waking up to the fact that people who go to church also go to the movies. I'm not sure what took them so long to see that or how long they'll keep it up.
Did you know you can't say 'Jesus' in a sitcom? They told me that and I was like, You gotta be kiddin' me. If you don't want my God here, you don't want me here either. God has been too good to me to go and try to sell out to get some money..It ain't gonna happen.
It takes a week to do a sitcom in Hollywood. I do a show a day in my studio, three or four shows a week.
I've never been one to knock on the door and say, "Please let me in". I have always tried to make my own way. I do not think change comes from asking people to let you in. I think change comes by becoming owners of studios, owners of projects, owners of content.
