In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix founder and CEO Reed Hastings shares the reason why he chose to return to television after more than 25 years as a producer, explaining that “the best way to get out of a job is to get to work.”
In an extensive interview, Hastings discusses his work as an executive producer on several hit shows, including The Wire, Arrested Development, True Detective, and House of Cards, and explains why he’s now so determined to “re-enter the world of television.”
Here’s what he had to say:Netflix was very much an entertainment company.
The first time I worked at Netflix, I had a job I hated.
It was a TV show called The Wire.
I didn’t like it.
But when it got picked up by HBO, I was on the other side of the globe, and we were talking about what would happen when HBO would start to do what it does.
And I said, “Well, this is going to be very different than what I’m used to.”
And I was like, “Oh, well, it’s going to look like a TV movie.
It’s going the opposite direction.
It won’t be about violence.”
And that’s what it was.
I went from that show to a different kind of job that I hate, which is TV movie production.
And then I realized that I didn and I’m not going to let that happen to me again.
The reason why I do this is because I love television and I love being able to create and tell stories, and the more that I can do that, the better it is for everybody.
I don’t want to be a producer anymore.
I don’t need to be.
If I get a job and it’s good, I’m happy. But I don�t need to do it anymore.
You have to be creative, and I think that that�s what it comes down to.
It comes down, in my mind, to my values.
I’m an entrepreneur.
I love that part of it.
I have an incredible passion for the craft.
And it’s something that I believe in, and if you have that, you can be the most powerful and successful person in the world.
I�m not going anywhere.
I want to work with my children, and they�re going to do well.
They can do what they want to do.
I know I have tremendous talent and I have a great vision for how the world will look and be.
So I�ll work with them and try to do whatever I can to be able to provide them with opportunities to be successful and be successful as well.
I think that I’m going to continue to be at Netflix for the foreseeable future, because I think it’s the right thing to do, and it�s something that’s important to me.
I think there are a lot of things that are happening at Netflix right now that are really important, and so it makes sense to stay.
I feel like that will make the world a better place and give me more time to work.
And in a way, I don?t want to go anywhere.
So that will be good.
The next thing I want is to try to help people get more involved in politics.
I believe that if you want to change the world, you need to get involved in political campaigns.
I am not just talking about politics, I am talking about things that people care about. And that�ll be a really good place for me to work in.
You want to make it happen?
I have lots of experience in that.
I can go out there and help people, and when you get involved, people will follow.
And that is not going away.
We have been doing politics and doing things, and politics and things will continue to evolve and evolve and change.
That’s the reality.
And the reason for that is, we have been working on it for 25 years, and people will be voting and people are paying attention, and that�ve made it so that we have more people interested.
And so, I think we�re on the right track and we are making progress.
I am a huge fan of The Wire and I always loved that show.
And one of the things that I loved about that show was that the whole story was woven together from the very beginning, in the first season.
And people were saying, “You know, it just felt like there was a lot more.”
And then, of course, people started watching it, and now they love it, but it still felt like a story that just needed to be told.
So the fact that it is a really great show now, I feel really fortunate that Netflix is going in the right direction with it.
And also, it�ll make it a lot easier for people to do the things they love.
Because it is so great and I really like the show,
