The X-Files needs Immersive Tie-ins and above all Good Characters

22 August 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For The X-Files to live beyond David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson’s desires to return as heroes and William B. Davis’ desire to continue as adversary, new characters need screen-time to develop.  More than fan-service in the episodes, merchandizing and more women behind the cameras will be required to make The X-Flies a going concern again.  The men and women in the creative team need to deliver new characters in whom the audience can invest, who will carry the show forward.  Since Law and Order did it for 20 seasons, The X-Files can, too. Likewise, X-Files creator Chris Carter, and the men and

He was hired for the writing job at age 28. This was a lucky break for the aspiring young filmmaker. He advanced to writing and producing for the show. His writing is good and it landed him more gigs including a stint for “Breaking Bad.” He’s doing okay but it appears that he’s on a venture that could lead to even greater things. Vince is a creative writer and he knows how

The new season of The X-Files will be mainly standalone episodes

12 August 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May it was announced that The X-Files creator Chris Carter will once again be reuniting with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for an eleventh season of the paranormal series, set to premiere in 2018.

During the Television Critics Association press tour this past week, Fox entertainment president David Madden revealed a little nugget of information about the new season, stating that the new season will consist of eight stand-alone episodes, sandwiched between mythology episodes in the season premiere and season finale.

Meanwhile, Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden was also asked about the controversy over the predominantly male writing team – something that Gillian Anderson herself expressed her displeasure over – with Walden stating that:

“I don’t want to make any excuses for anyone. Chris has assigned two women to two of the 10 episodes, and we do have two female directors. I think Chris is making moves in the right direction. »

Fox Chief Dana Walden on ‘American Idol’ Reboot, ‘The X-Files,’ ‘Wayward Pines’

8 August 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox on Tuesday revealed plans for its first post-“American Idol” singing competition. But the show that defined the network for 15 seasons still looms large.

Asked Tuesday at the Television Critics Association press tour whether Fox, which canceled “Idol” two years ago, or ABC, which is paying a hefty sum to bring the show back, had made a serious mistake, Fox Television Group co-ceo Dana Walden responded, “ABC” — then added, “I’m joking.”

Walden unpacked Fox’s decision-making process around “Idol” — both the decision to let the franchise go, and its bid to land the revival of the show, which ultimately went to ABC.

“‘American Idol’ was an extremely expensive show,” Walden said. When she and co-ceo Gary Newman took over the network in 2015, ratings for the show — which had enjoyed a lengthy run as television’s highest-ratings king — were in a steep decline. “The economics were terrible at that moment. We »
