ME: Basically, Dennis created the show and wrote what's called a bible
(a series overview, breakdown of characters and such) and he was going
to write the pilot script...but CBS was unhappy with his work so I was
called in to take over.  I changed around a lot of what he did,
redefined a lot of the characters, wrote a new bible and then wrote
the pilot.

The way the official credits read on the show, it says, "Created by
Dennis Marks, Developed for television by Mark Evanier."
