ETA: He's talking about working on The Shield and he's like, "When the shield wants drug addicts, they get drug addicts, none of this casting drug addicts."
ETA2: OHMYGOD! Dark Angel was cancelled, according to him, because the head of the Network thought it was too black and not because of ratings! He wanted Max and Alec to get together, which was not Eglee's or Cameron's intent, and he wanted it to be a MoTW show like Buffy!
ETA3: This seems to be a source of confusion, so, to clarify, by black Eglee meant African-American. Yes, the network exec really was that heinous.
