Tucker Burns is a qualified reporter who can't get a job. He applies for a job at the World Chronicle, where they are delighted to have an over-qualified (by their standards!) reporter on staff. It turns out that all the stories the Chronicle reports are true, but written as tabloid articles so that the public can slowly get acclimated to such things. Aided by photographer Wes and alien abductee/reporter Grace, and backed by his mysterious boss Donald Stern, Tucker investigates, ghosts, aliens, and other supernatural phenomena. Written by
In the 11th episode of the 1st season, "Touched by an Alien", a reporter at the staff meeting mentions a government-sponsored Invisible Man project. This is a reference to another SciFi Channel production, The Invisible Man (2000), which shared a building in the San Fernando Valley as well as many crew members and extras. The "invisible locusts ate my crops" tabloid in the final episode ("The New Stuff") of The Invisible Man was meant to be a copy of The Chronicle, but the Network never replied to writer 'Craig Silverstein''s suggestion.

This show has been screening several episodes at a time over the past year It's great that a show like this was made but it's a shame that a well written show like this, head and shoulders above most of the stuff on TV gets cancelled after only one season. The channel that shows this also showed 'The Lone Gunmen' this year, another well written SciFi/Comedy/Mystery that only lasted one season. Are these types of shows unpopular or are they given bad timeslots in the US? I suppose these shows wouldn't have been made if room wasn't made for them by the cancellation of other shows, but I wonder what needs to change to ensure that a good show stays on when it comes along.
