A friend asked me for help. My friends have coin with me, and there is little
I can deny them.

At the time of Walker, we were well into the B5 pilot and looking toward the
series. David Moessinger had been my exec producer on Jake and Murder, She
Wrote, and he got the gig on Walker. He was kind of up against it in the
structure of Cannon Television, and it was a huge show, and even though I was
already booked, he asked if I could come over and help him get this train up on
the rails.

I said yes. See above.
