The main rule of fantasy is simple, “don’t break the rules you create.” Viewers will follow you to the edge of your universe, as long as you don’t betray them. But what and who dictates the “rules” of the universe? Producers, writers, and development execs talk about what goes into the process (freedoms and limitations) of creating a fantasy TV series, from building the look of a new world and the characters that inhabit it to placing supernatural characters into our everyday lives.
