We have fresh ideas and amazing talent but the key to success for us is really about channeling a broad mainstream audience and evoking the unique sense of mystery and excitement that these iconic shows did.?

Taylor added, ?We really like where we are with the ?Night Tales? brand right now. The TV series is just the beginning and it will continue to grow.?
