I heard from a friend that you will be the first writer ever to write an entire season alone for a
tv show. Is it true, and if so, congrats on your endurance.

Thanks. And yes, I'll be the first in American TV to do so; when you get
into the UK, however, you've got Terry Nation, who wrote all 16 (18?) of
Blake 7's first season, which represents some pretty nifty writing on his
part.

13 (even he wasn't crazy enough to try for 22)

I hope you're not TOO influenced by Blakes 7, considering what happened in
the final series.

FYI: Each of Blakes 7's series was 13 episodes, 50 minutes each
approx.
