"Even when I studied Chekhov's plays in college, I felt empathy for his older characters, often regretful and unhappy," says Durang. "Now that I'm older, I wanted to do something triggered by Chekhov but put in the present day. My farm house, which is on a little hill, made me think of a lot of the sets I've seen in 'The Seagull.'" The result of such musing is "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.

But CBS kept it on the shelf throughout the season and finally decided to play it off amid summer reruns.
