Director Peter Atencio discusses how he got Comedy Central to allow him to direct all 8 episodes of the 1st season of "Key and Peele", the decision on whether or not to include a laugh track in the show, completing 8 episodes on a tight schedule and budget, what it was like directing content for the now defunct website SuperDeluxe, striving to bring a cinematic aesthetic to web and sketch comedy, and how directing a DTV horror feature did little to nothing for his career.
