“Will & Grace” star Debra Messing misses the days when people had to wait a week to find out what happens on their favorite show.
“I think that everything has become so immediate, and we need answers right away,” the actress told Cheddar in an interview at the Sundance Film Festival. “Our patience has been worn down from many things in society, and I think as a result it’s led to streaming.”
“I like that old school [feeling of], ‘No, no, no, no! I have to find out!’”
On the other hand, the rise of streaming propelled the director of Messing’s latest film to success.
“I literally just made a video and put it on YouTube and it got a million hits in a day,” said Aneesh Chaganty, the director of “Search.”
“I got hired by Google by the weekend to make their commercials. That would’ve not been possible without [streaming] today.”
“Search” stars Messing and John Cho, along with Chaganty, premiered the film at Sundance this week. The movie won the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Award, and Sony has reportedly acquired its rights.
