The idea for the show was originally pitched to the Fox Broadcasting Company in 2003 but was turned down as Fox felt somewhat nervous about the long-term possibilities of such a television series. It was later considered as a possible 10-part mini series, which allegedly drew interest from big names in the film industry such as Steven Spielberg
and Bruce Willis
. However, the mini series never materialized. Following the huge popularity of serialized prime-time television series such as 24
(2001) and Lost
(2004), the Fox Network had a change of heart and backed the production in 2004. See more
