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:

Had a grandfather named Carl Gerhardt Bush, which Carter used as the true name of the Cigarette Smoking Man on The X-Files (1993). See more »
