I need to settle an argument! I want to know if there is a TV series which 1) was completely written before filming started, and 2) was "short" - 1-2 seasons or something.
Note that I am interested in things which were written solely for television; so adaptations of Shakespeare or Dickens would not apply. The argument is actually about the attitude of network executives, who might not be interested in running something which wouldn't have the potential to last forever - regardless of the quality of the show under consideration.
I think a TV series which was totally written after the pilot or something might be ok too.
Anyone have an example?
