I don't know what you want to tell them regarding B5 et al., but it would also be advisable to contact Warner Bros. with the same message.
TV deals aren't a one way street. In order for something to happen you need someone at WB to actually be trying to selling a B5-oriented show to them. Because most TV shows are deficit-financed by their production company--that would be WB--in order for them to want to produce a show and sell it, you need to convince them its going to make them money also. As I said, it's not a 1-way street.
SciFi is one of those networks who gets "save our show" letters for almost every show they have on. If anything is going to work, it has to work in conjunction with the production company pushing also.
So, anybody got a name and address of a person to contact within "Warner Brothers" (the studio, not Warner Home Video), who might be able to push from the production company end of things???
All I have is:
4000 Warner Blvd.
Burbank, CA. 91522
The plan is to keep it short and to the point, and positive.
Here's what I'm mulling over:
<font color="orange">To Warner Brothers and The Sci-Fi Channel:
Babylon 5 is the best sci-fi series I've ever seen. I've watched Star Trek since the beginning, The X-Files since 1993, and numerous other sci-fi series, but NONE of them came close to Babylon 5. In 1999, the Babylon 5 spinoff, Crusade, was cancelled by TNT before even one episode had aired. I've seen all the episodes of Crusade, and it could EASILY have ranked up there with Babylon 5. That same year, I came across a great series, called Brimstone, on The Sci-Fi Channel. Like Crusade, Brimstone too had been cancelled, and just 13 episodes had been produced. Both series were very well written, had very interesting characters, and were thought provoking.
Both Crusade and Brimstone could be EXCELLENT series for Warner Brothers to produce, and for The Sci-Fi Channel to air. At a time when it seems that the future of well written sci-fi and fantasy is going straight down the tubes, Crusade and Brimstone have never been needed more.</font color>
Now, you may disagree with some of what I said, but the intent is to put in a good word for Crusade and Brimstone, both of which are Warner Brothers products which air on The Sci-Fi Channel. If both of these came back on The Sci-Fi Channel, I think that most of us would view that as an overall GOOD thing, especially in light of the new shows that The Sci-Fi Channel is airing, and the ones they've cancelled.
