Ultimately my feeling is the net will be the source that saves the arts, the place where writers, producers, actors, muscians, artists can express themselves. The web series trend is the new way of telling stories and will continue attract the best in the industry as long as freedom reigns. This is just the beginning. Who knows what the future holds for scripted serials, whether it's on network television or online. I believe web series are here to stay and I am convinced it is an amazing opportunity for all who seek to keep the legacy of Arts alive!
