On a more serious note, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "the Spec you are given to write from." That's not really how it works. I'm not given a plot outline and asked to write it. It's more like I come up with a proposal/outline which is submitted to the Powers That Be for approval and comments.
Ah, OK, sorry about that
No problem. I was only belaboring the point because, in general, there sometimes seems to be some confusion about how the process works. And people occasionally seem to be under the impression that there's a lot more central planning involved than there actually is.
It's not like a TV series where there's a showrunner dictating the plotlines to the writing staff. Instead it's usually just a herd of scattered freelancers pitching ideas and outlines, which may or may not be approved by the licensor.
