I think the point of confusion is that there are two shows here, one
that's in development for next year, which I created, and the other is
a series wherein the people doing it came to me about running it. This
was similar to the Global Frequency situation last year, which I
would've worked on had the pilot been picked up. In this case, the
folks involved are already doing one series, for which this would be a
companion series, and 99% of the financing is now in place. Should
that last 1% go as planned, the series would prep in January and shoot
starting in March.

We learn by doing.
