Robert Wuhl: (describing "Arli$$") This is not a sitcom. All sitcoms look exactly the same. The same setups, the same lenses, the same transitions, the same everything. What we do isn't at all like that. We don't have to worry about subject matter. We don't have to be politically correct. What we do is make a little comedy movie every week.
