David Shore interview

David Shore, creator of House, talks to John Doyle in the Ontario Globe and Mail. Thanks to Denis McGrath for the link.
In my opinion, Canadian television so often fails for the same reason American movies so often fail: They're not controlled by writers. Now I'm biased on this one and there are obviously great, smart directors out there and great, smart producers but no one knows the story like the writer. American movies are controlled by directors; Canadian television is controlled by producers; American television is controlled by writers.
