Personal Quote:

[on exploring possibilities for developing a series based on a real historical figure] As soon as [Leonardo] Da Vinci was mentioned, I went online and saw that he's the most recognized figure in history other than Christ. So I said, 'Well, sounds like he's the guy we should do a show about', just in terms of pre-existing awareness. See more »
