I love how in the UK the people who make the shows own the shows, that makes sense. It's stupid in the USA that Community, Revenge had their bosses fired and that Futurama and Veronica Mars aren't owned by the ones who created the universes!

That said, is 10-13 half an hour episodes too much to ask? Season 1 of Sports Night was almost all written by Aaron Sorkin and its wonderful.
Not all of it is to do with the single writer or small team or small casts, some of it is the way our channels schedule and some of it is budgets, some of it is production space and some of it is just tradition.
