His goal for the still-developing series, Brand said, is fairly simple. "All I want is for people to feel better than they do now. That's all I want," he mused. "All I want is to make people laugh and to make people happy. And as long as I stay in alignment with that, then I'm served by great forces."
Will the series delve into his talked-about personal life? "I think there will be inevitable biographical elements because you can't speak from anyone's perspective but your own," he said. "Unless I was to bizarrely adapt some sort of avatar."
Brand conceded that he's frequently misunderstood in the press. But, to correct that, he told reporters, "I listen to others. I accept that you must be humble. It's very important to have humility. . . I have a tendency to fly off. I'm tangential and also I'm narcissistic. I have to be very careful."
His estranged wife Perry, meanwhile, wasn't too far away from Pasadena on Sunday night -- but the "Firework" singer, 26, avoided the glitz and celeb crush of Golden Globes parties.
