    Nearing the end of the eighth season, CBS TV demanded a lower pay-rate-fee for the guest actor payroll rate be implemented on the following season of shows. Peter Fisher argued with Les Moonvies, that the guest actor pay rate had been established, refusing to pay less for star personalities, if he remained on the series. A showdown occurred between CBS/Universal, with Peter Fisher and his associate producer Robert "Bob" O'Neil declaring their departure from the series under revolt of the CBS dictum. As a result, a new producing team was implemented by Universal and CBS. The new producing team, expected to provide scripts, David Mossinger also agreeing to direct, agreeing with the lower pay scale for guest stars, utilizing a younger breed of guest acting personalities, placing senior movie personalities in the lime light for guest-shot appearances. Moving Madam Fletcher to New York City, to teach writing at an (un-named) university, sleuthing murder while on her mystery writing career! Coinciding with the NY police department! This new producing team lasted one year! Angela and Peter Shaw's Corymore Productions took over, installing David Shaw, Peter's first born son, as a producer, and Angela as Executive Producer. Mark Burley remained with the series as producer. With the transition of power, Angela had the set decorator Robert "Bob" Wingo fired, replaced with her family friend, decorator Fred Winston. Fred had worked the series, previously, in the first three years of the series, when alternating art department teams had been pattern. Winston lasted one year as decorator. His mother's friendship with Angela, he assumed, guaranteed a show longevity.

    There are many in-jokes in "The Committee" (episode 8.9). The last names of characters Edward Dunsany, Gerald Innsmouth, and Philip Arkham all refer to works by H.P. Lovecraft. The name of Harcourt Fenton is an obvious reference to Star Trek: The Original Series rogue Harcourt Fenton Mudd, and the names of Lieutenant Tartarus and the Avernus Club both refer to mythological hells. This is no surprise, given that prolific SF author J. Michael Straczynski wrote this episode.
