  • Former TNT Execs Go On Record About 'Crusade' In New Book Coming In 2024

    Hi all,

    Hopefully you won't mind a bit of self promotion as it is relevant to B5 and Crusade.... I've been working on a book about the TNT drama Major Crimes and how the show began. As part of that there are a few chapters relating to TNT's past record in original series in the 1990s which discusses Babylon 5 and Crusade. In researching this I managed to get several former TNT executives, including then TNT President Brad Siegel, to go on the record as to what happened from their perspective.

    An explanation was provided as to why TNT allowed Atlanta to take point, rather than leaving it to LA. I think I'd best describe what the book will offer as revealing that there is broad agreement between TNT folks and JMS on facts on the ground, but their views on why these things were happening are vastly different.

    With the exception of Scot Safon who spoke to Rob Owen in 1999, I believe this is the first time they have publicly commented on this. I don't want to give much away, but what was said was fascinating. The book, 'I Want A Deal: Inside The Transition From The Closer To Major Crimes', is due for release next year (looking like August).‚Äč

    Hi, Patrick,

    I'd be willing to bet that there's not going to be any 'explanation' for why they wanted fistfights and sexual explorers. I'll also be interested to see how their recollections match with the memos and notes from the production.

    Thanks for letting us know.

      That is explained. Perhaps not in heavy detail, but certainly there is an explanation offered as to what they were trying to achieve with those notes. I'll leave it to others to draw their own conclusions when the book is out.
