Comic Review: Millennium #1

Click To Buy/Preview

Millennium #1

Writer: Joe Harris

Artist: Colin Lorimer

Colorist: Joana Lafuente

Publisher: Idw Publishing

Price: $4

My experience with the world of Chris Carter’s TV shows consists of a few scattered X-Files episodes (specifically ones written by William Gibson or starring Tony Todd) and a half hour of the Millennium pilot (also about fifteen minutes of Harsh Realm). I remember absolutely loving these things but not being able to watch more because up until I was about 16, I wasn’t allowed to watch much TV, and certainly not the scary stuff. By the time I was 16, any interest I might have had in TV was scoured away by my devoted passion to my Super Nes. As I’ve gotten older, my caution in sampling The X-Files and Millennium has been due to the size of the commitment; I know the series are intertwined and that The X-Files

'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Takes on Image Comics Adaptation 'Age of Heroes'

'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Takes on Image Comics Adaptation 'Age of Heroes'
While original X-Men director Bryan Singer was set to direct X-Men: Apocalypse after X-Men: Days of Future Past became an enormous hit at the box office earlier in the year, it has still not been completely confirmed that he will be able to return, due to his pending sexual abuse lawsuit. But if legal issues do tie him up, and someone else is forced to take over, it's clear he's not ready to leave the superhero genre anytime soon. His next project as a director could be an adaptation of Image Comics' Age of Heroes.

Bryan Singer's production company Bat Hat Harry has picked up the title for development. James D. Hudnall created the 90s title, with Alex Hollister writing the screenplay. Marc Berliner is set to produce along with David Engel and Stephen Emery through their House of Confusion production company.

  • Deadline TV
Exclusive: Breaking Bad executive producer/director Michelle MacLaren has signed a two-year exclusive first-look deal with HBO. The pay cable network has had its eye on MacLaren for a while — she has become one of the go-to directors for HBO’s flagship drama Game Of Thrones, directing four episodes over the past two seasons. She is now directing HBO’s new drama series, Damon Lindelof’s The Leftovers. For her work as an executive producer and director on AMC’s Breaking Bad, MacLaren shared in the best drama Emmy Award the Vince Gilligan-created series won last year and has earned two directing Emmy nominations. She also is involved in the Breaking Bad prequel series, Better Call Saul. MacLaren, repped by ICM Partners and attorney Mitch Smelkinson, first worked with Gilligan on Harsh Realm and The X-Files, on both of which she served as a co-executive producer, making her directorial debut on The X-Files.

InsideTV Podcast: Terry O'Quinn reflects on Locke, 'Lost', and That ending
He played one of the most charismatic characters in TV history, so when Terry O’Quinn popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new Fox drama Gang Related (which debuts May 22), we knew we also had to chat with him about his Emmy winning turn as John Locke on Lost. Apparently, we are not alone, as O’Quinn told us that people still stop him on the street hoping to crack the code on that character and the show in general. “That’s what people generally stop me for and talk to me about now is Lost,

Should We Be Excited About Chris Carter’s Two New Shows?

Even before The X-Files ended its nine-year run, Chris Carter was dismissed as a one-hit wonder. It’s easy to see why. His subsequent efforts — the occult-themed Millennium, the virtual reality-centered Harsh Realm, even The X-Files‘ goofy nerd brother The Lone Gunmen, which was co-created by Vince Gilligan — found few fans. Harsh Realm lasted only three episodes. Twenty years after The X-Files suggested (but didn’t show) its first UFO, news came that Carter was ready to give TV-creating another try. After revolutionizing the television landscape with The X-Files‘ pioneering direction, cinematography, and unique will-they-or-won’t-they coupling, Carter is poised to enjoy the fruits of his labors: a cottage industry of prestige cable dramas that look closer to cinema than television and a new media setting where sci-fi/fantasy reigns supreme. In his sights are an AMC drama about anti-government paranoia (sound familiar?) and a hour-long thriller on Amazon called The After that begins with the apocalypse

Chris Carter's new drama The After gets a pilot order from Amazon

It looks like The X-Files creator Chris Carter could be set for a return to television for the first time in over a decade, with Deadline reporting that Amazon Studios has placed a pilot order for The After, an hour-long project Carter has been developing with Georgeville TV.

The After is described as "a thriller which revolves around a mysterious, unexplained event [and] incorporates elements of science fiction, suspense, and real world fear and paranoia." It is said to take place at "the moment of apocalypse" and Carter is expected to direct the pilot from his own script.

Best known for creating The X-Files, Carter's other TV credits include the spin-offs Millennium and The Lone Gunmen, as well as an adaptation of the comic book Harsh Realm. His most recent directing credit was the X-Files movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe in 2008, while he's also currently in post production on the thriller Fencewalker.

The X-Files’ Chris Carter Is Developing a Mysterious New Show for AMC

The X-Files’ Chris Carter Is Developing a Mysterious New Show for AMC
Twenty years after Mulder, Scully, and Cigarette-Smoking Man entered the world, The X-Files mastermind Chris Carter remains a very busy man. During a recent conversation with Vulture to discuss the show’s anniversary — check back next week for our full Vulture Transcript — Carter surprised us with the news that he’s currently developing a series with AMC. This project is in addition to the long-gestating one-hour sci-fi drama The After, which Amazon Studios has reportedly snatched up. No stranger to divvying up his attention (remember, during the nine-season run of The X-Files, he also created Millennium, Harsh Realm, and The Lone Gunmen), Carter explained to Vulture that the idea was hatched after AMC approached him — twice — with a book and asked for his take on it. "It also owes to The X-Files and I’ve written a draft and I’m writing a second draft,” he said.When asked if

X-Files Creator Chris Carter Possibly Returning to TV With Apocalyptic Drama The After

Amazon hasn't had too much luck with scripted programming, the crash and burn of their "Zombieland" (review) show doesn't exactly bode well for the studio, but they're looking to up the ante with a few upcoming projects, including one of particular interest.

Dumped into a news story about Amazon and potential new projects was a very familiar name: Chris Carter. The creator of the much loved "The X-Files," as well as the excellent but short lived "Millennium" and "Harsh Realm" series, is apparently back in action after a break post X-Files: I Want to Believe.

'X-Files' Creator Chris Carter Shopping Around a New Supernatural Series Called 'The After'

'X-Files' Creator Chris Carter Shopping Around a New Supernatural Series Called 'The After'
Aside from the 2008 movie "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," things have been quiet from "The X-Files" creator Chris Carter in the years since his signature show came to an end in 2002. None of his other series caught on. "Millennium" was the most successful, generating acclaim but low viewership, leading to it being canceled after three seasons in 1999. "Harsh Realm" lasted only a handful of episodes that same year before getting snipped, while "X-Files" spin-off "The Lone Gunmen" made it just one season in 2001. Carter's obviously a very influential figure, and he hasn't stepped entirely away from the scene -- he had "Unique," a police thriller with a female lead and supernatural elements, set up at Media Right Capital last year as a series to write and executive produce, but ultimately nothing came of the project. In 2008, it was reported that Carter was working on a secret film...

CAA Signs ‘X-Files’ Creator Chris Carter

  • Deadline TV
Exclusive: The X-Files creator Chris Carter has signed with CAA. Carter had been a longtime client of Bob Broder, first at Bwcs and most recently at ICM following the agencies’ 2006 merger. After a decade away from TV, Carter last fall teamed with Mrc to shop female-driven mystery thriller spec Unique, which ultimately didn’t sell. He is attached as an executive producer to another spec, written by feature scribe Jon Bokenkamp, which is being shopped to cable networks by Sony TV. In addition to The X-Files, which ran on Fox for 9 seasons, Carter developed Harsh Realm, created Millennium and co-created the X-Files spinoff The Lone Gunmen. Since The X-Files ended its run in 2002, Carter has stayed largely out of the spotlight, only resurfacing to do the 2008 X-Files movie sequel and the upcoming thriller Fencewalker. There has been talk recently about a potential third X-Files movie.

The Flintstones are returning but these are the TV reboots we want to see

Us networks haven't learned from the failures of recent Charlie's Angels, Knight Rider and Bionic Woman remakes. Is it time to call for Callan?

Now the current American TV season is halfway over, attention turns towards the new pilots; programmes jockeying for position in 2013. Here's what's in the pipeline: a non-sitcom version of The Munsters, a Sex And The City prequel called The Carrie Diaries, Seth MacFarlane's version of The Flintstones, a revival of weird 1980s subterranean mutant romance Beauty And The Beast, Space: 2099 (a re-imagining of Space: 1999) and, starting this summer, a modern-day Dallas featuring a new generation of feuding oil barons along with their decrepit elders.

The pipeline, you'll notice, is clogged with remakes, a clear indicator of an industry mired in creative bankruptcy. Original voices and fresh ideas are being stifled in favour of playing it safe. It's not even as if digging deep into
