TV producer 2015

How have you been able to avoid the problems of reality shows that start to feel stale after several years?

It’s the team. There’s a certain esprit de corps—it’s a military word in that when you’re playing on a top team, you play better. How much do you think people would like to have a hit show? You can work on one of 500 shows, but if you’re the person working on The Voice or Survivor or Shark Tank or The Bible or A.D. and on and on, it feels great to go home and say, “Hey, we just won another game!” It’s really good to play on those teams. So it’s less about me; it’s more about them. All I’ve done is create the culture.
