> So have you already written that episode?

No, 501 isn't written yet, won't be until we get the final
word. We could certainly get it finished in time for the US airing in
422's spot, and as for getting it done in the UK, assuming a mid-July
start for season 4, means you'd run episodes through late October/early
November so again you're okay.

"Is the cast under contract for season five, should it happen?. Now
that you've wrapped the final episode, is there any danger of losing
Bruce, Claudia, Jerry, Mira, etc to other committments while you wait
to see if season is a go?"

No, the contracts have nothing to do with that episode, we still
have options on all our cast members.

"You mentioned that you were already shooting Thirdspace, the first B5
movie. Wasn't "In The Beginning" the Minbari war story going to be
first?"

The prequel is aired first, but produced second, because B5
didn't exist during the prequel time period, so rather than tear and
and rebuild sets, we're doing Thirdspace first.

They're strictly TNT.

The movies will almost certainly be released overseas, and
since I think TNT is carried on Sky TV, that would in theory mean that
it would hit there the same time as here.

By "tear down" I simply mean move off the stages so we can move
the other sets in; we don't destroy them, just fold-n-hold.

If you're in the US, it's only available on TNT.

Thanks, I appreciate that. And actually, there are 5 more eps
to go; 501 was moved to the end of year 4 as "Deconstruction," so
you've got this next one, then the wait, and the final four.
