But why does it have to be on HBO?
I'm sure it sounds schizophrenic when I talk about different tones, but I'm thinking about the ability to experiment, more than you'd be able to do in a single feature. There'd be a more or less consistent tone for the series overall, but you'd have that ability to experiment stylistically.
HBO just because it's HBO, and there wouldn't be the kinds of restrictions or pressures from network TV or even basic cable.
