Dick Wolf Quotes / Quotations

Advertising is the art of the tiny. You have to tell a complete a story and deliver a complete message in a very encapsulated form. It disciplines you to cut away extraneous information.

Quotation of Dick Wolf

Quotation of Dick Wolf


I do love television. But the business is accelerating and people are not getting the chance to fail.
Quotation of Dick Wolf

If the scripts are not good, I'll tell somebody, 'This isn't good.'
Quotation of Dick Wolf


If you're going to vote on a television contract, there is a certain rationality to saying that the same structures that are applied to Health Plan participation should be placed on the right to vote on a strike.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


It was like in Samoa when they'd put up a movie screen on the beach and show movies and the locals would run behind the sheet to see where the people went. It was pretty grim.

Quotation of Dick Wolf


Now somebody comes on as a staff writer and the next year they've got a hot agent and then they're a supervising producer.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


People do have viewing patterns, and you disrupt those at your own peril. That's something that everybody learned after 1988. The numbers have gone down every year since that strike. Big time.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


People recognize certain things, like 'D' means 'this dialogue stinks.' We're dealing with shows that are written here, shot in New York and posted back here. Accurate communication is a necessity.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


T.V. has to be edited and scored and everything else, and if you don't like what you're watching it can be a very painful process.
Quotation of Dick Wolf

Quotation of Dick Wolf


The agendas on the management side of the table now are not in sync like they used to be because you have vastly different entities supplying programming to networks.
Quotation of Dick Wolf

Quotation of Dick Wolf


The great strikes of the '50s and '60s were bloody and awful, but at that point there were only three networks. Everyone came back to work.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


The heart and soul of network programming is series programming, the weekly repetition of characters you like having in your house.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


The margin notes are not for the writers, they go to the executive producer, and I try to make them short and succinct.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


The most positive step is to try to expand the employment base by making it, if not economically friendly, at least not economically disastrous, for studios to take on deficits.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


The story drove the book. That had a very seminal effect on the way I saw writing and storytelling. If you can set a character in a story that is compelling and has a backbone, you draw people in.
Quotation of Dick Wolf


The threat to free television. The reason television is free is because it is a life support system for commercials. That fundamental aspect is about to change.
Quotation of Dick Wolf

Quotation of Dick Wolf
