Isn't that what they've been trying to do for years now? They had a built-in audience of 12M who saw the series and bailed. Moving production to Canada and getting Canadian backers isn't going to solve the problem of why they left. Frankly, I think those people are just gone and there's nothing anyone can do to get em back. My solution would be to simply re-organize the finances so that 3M viewers are sufficient.
Yep, that's it in a nutshell. It is a feasible thing to do. It has been done with other currently running shows and there's no reason why it can't be done with ENT. You can have a financially viable show with ENT's budget and ENT's ratings. You just have to find the right place for it.

At least there is no immediate financial reason preventing this. Apparently, there may be Paramount political reasons.

If they're looking to ease Berman out when his contract expires, keeping ENT going could complicate their plans.

Yes, I've thought of that. All by itself that gives me pause in bringing ENT back. And that's despite the fact that I've enjoyed ENT's 4th season and would like to give Coto a shot at a 5th!

It's definitely a mixed bag either way. Cancel ENT and get rid of Berman but don't give Coto another shot. Keep ENT, give Coto that shot but keep Berman. I don't know. I guess either way I'm fine and will accept the positives!

Don't be to sure. I think if given the choice he'd probably stick with ENT.

Mogh, you're an idiot and shouldn't be gloating.

Yup. I'm human too. And sometimes I get carried away.
* hands Mogh another six pack *

Between keeping you in beer and my own supply, I am gonna go broke.

Whatever happens, whatever comes out of all this, whatever the conclusion is to this ordeal, I am glad I sent TU money. I am proud to have been a small part of this.

It’s really sad that TU has caused so much controversy on this BBS. But, and this is just an opinion, I think most of the controversy is over blown and unjustified. It seems to come from posters either not listening or not understanding what is being said by TU. I think TU has it faults, but faults and warts and all, I support them.

As it stands, he's been let go by Paramount and is now working for Fox. I very much doubt that he can go back now, even if he wanted to.

Which is a pity really. If season 5 does come off, it would have been good to see Coto continue with the good work he's done over the past 12 months.

Re: TrekUnited Proposed Season 5 Co-Production Dea

I really don't see how this announcement changes anything. I, for one, assumed that TrekUnited had been doing all they could to get a fifth season, including attempting to find another studio that would produce the show if Paramount agreed.

Unfortunately for this viewer and fan, this announcement is extremely anticlimactic, not even close to "galvanizing".

*sigh*

Oh, and as for the suggestion that everyone who doubts TU should now humble themselves before the almighty Mogh, I don't care for it. This announcement changes nothing from what the situation was a week ago, two weeks ago, whenever you want to pick a date.

It's "Oh, we've got something BIG BIG BIG" and then when the announcement is made, there are still no results.

Re: TrekUnited Proposed Season 5 Co-Production Deal To Paramount

I really wouldn't want to see the 'Tide' Laundry Detergent logo on the nacelles, though. I'm glad Paramount said no.

you are correct. I have been told by people in the legal department (Melinda M and Valerie E) that the only way for TU to 'succeeed' would be for Paramount to sell off part of the Trek asset and there is NO WAY that Paramount are going to enter into any kind of co-production deal with any partners. Paramount value the Trek asset too highly and arent about to go selling parts of it off.

It is also my understanding from those I have talked to that the Wentworth letter is the FINAL word and it still stands and applies to Trek United, Inc, and any partners of Trek United and the cancellation is final on UPN and on any other network.


and they are a bit shocked that people dont understand this.

No means NO
