No, the Netter release DOES NOT specifically state that there
will not be a season 5. It talks about the current 88 episodes in the
can, which TNT wants to go with asap, but we've been told by WB that a
concurrent airing of season 5 and the TNT reruns is a possibility, so
it's still in the discussion process.

Re: "programming franchises"...I agree. I went and yelled on
Doug today, because this came out of the offices of the financial guys
in his company, and their only goal is to make everything big and
productive sounding for their stockholders, and that's the kind of
language they love. I didn't even see the thing until I logged on
today...and created several new orifices for him in the area of "these
things never go out unless I see them first!" Financial people and
creative people have different concerns and different priorities.
(Which is why there were no quotes from me in this, I didn't know it
was going out.)

So people have been yelled at on this one.

Yes, we both have equal ownership of Babylonian Productions, but
Netter Digital Entertainment is his separate company, I have nothing to
do with it, don't work for or with it or own any of it.

No, no definitive word yet.

NDEI has its own projects under development, was involved in
the Battleground Earth project with Majel Roddenberry, produces the
occasional documentary (such as the Wild West documentary a couple
years ago), and other projects which don't involve me at all.
