Kandel also wrote an unused script for the Planet of the Apes TV series. The final draft of his script, titled "Hostage", was dated April 5, 1974, and judging by the production codes was one of the earliest scripts written before the series entered production. The story followed on from an already-written TV series Concept, and featured Virdon, Kovak (later renamed 'Burke') and Galen as fugitives from ape leaders Zaius and Ursus (later renamed 'Urko').
