  • Quotes

    • Jason: Wilfred is an opportunity for us to do exactly what we want. With The Wedge we had to make compromises. The chain of command goes up so high and you have to write to a certain formula. But The Wedge is a different timeslot (to Wilfred) and with a major network, so we've got to work within those premises.
