We generally made deals for all episodes produced, and I used the actors as I
needed them for the story.

Only problem with doing that is that it whittles away the complexity of the
story you can tell, and the degree of personalization. X characters per
episode = Y minutes spent with each of those characters out of a set number of
minutes per episode (about 43).

I always figured, just take what I need for the story and no more than that.
