In the week since “Stranger Things” debuted on Netflix, it’s become an instant cult sensation with huge social media buzz. Levy has been a believer from the beginning, when series creators Matt and Ross Duffer first pitched the idea to his production company, 21 Laps. He came on board, helped bring the series to Netflix, agreed to direct two episodes, and continues to champion the show as it finds its audience.
