The writers and actors are in the same situation. Just to clarify,
because this isn't entirely correct and goes back to a story that was
put out that we all gave up residuals, which ain't true...there aren't
any broadcast residuals coming in to any of us because the show isn't
being broadcast anywhere at the moment. Residuals are paid when the
show is aired. We are getting a small piece of the DVDs, as noted in
another thread.

If and when the series shows up on broadcast or cable TV again, then
residuals will kick in once more.
