Not at all, because I haven't been doing the B5 production fandango for the
last 5 years nonstop.  And the workload, at least at this point, looks like
it's going to dovetail quite well....

To explain: we shoot the Rangers MOW May/June.  The other (still TWCBN, alas)
series would begin prep July/August, and (labor relations permitting) shoot
right after Labor Day (I just realized how appropriate that is...that's damned

Shooting the 20 hours involved in The Other Project will take us through
January, maybe into early February.  If Rangers goes as a series, we'd probably
start shooting in February/March.  We've even discussed having crew going from
one project to the other, and just rotating between them.
