Personal Quote:

The television business changed a lot from when I did The X-Files (1993) to when we did Harsh Realm (1999). Television took on the characteristics of the feature film industry, where, if the show didn't open 'big' out-of-the-gate...it was canceled, immediately. See more »

Trivia:

Under tremendous time crunch, Carter did an all-night audio mix session to finish the X-Files pilot, which was to be shown to FOX execs the following morning. He ended up sleeping on a couch in the FOX Studios lobby. See more »
