In theory, yes, we could, and there are plans for the three of us to
meet later this month and January to at minimum break out what the
rest of the episodes would be. How quickly we can turn the scripts
around is up to their film schedule, and we need to confirm that it
would be okay to do so with the guild, since again this is for
ourselves, not a studio or network. If not, then we'll have to wait
until post-strike to do any more work on them.

In terms of Changeling...we have about two more weeks of shooting and
that'll be in the can. I've seen some assembled scenes, and it looks
truly amazing. Everybody's doing an outstanding job on this, and I
think we've got a real winner on our hands.
