    Hollywood has been run by accountants for the last thirty years. It’s a much safer investment to take known characters and plots from TV or Print material that is already proven rather than to take a shot in the dark with an unknown story. Just like the stock market their safe bet system can sometimes be blown out of the water by companies willing to take a chance on something new and original. I would use Stranger Things as a good example of that.
