Official Press Release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 4, 2011 (backtofrankblack.com) — This month, in an exclusive online event, the Back to Frank Black campaign will undertake its most significant interview to date, bringing together a trio of key alumni from the television series Millennium for the first time in over a decade: creator and executive producer Chris Carter, co-executive producer Frank Spotnitz, and Frank Black himself, star Lance Henriksen. The three will discuss their work on the series as well as the potential for its continuation. This landmark meeting represents the culmination of campaign’s efforts to date and could very well dictate the fate of a celebrated character. “This podcast could be the make or break of the campaign,” says Back to Frank Black project manager James McLean. “The staff know this, so does Lance. We hope what’s said on this podcast will change the future for a Millennium movie one way or another!”
Established by the fans of Millennium, Back to Frank Black represents a campaign dedicated to seeing the return of its unique protagonist—criminal profiler Frank Black, as portrayed by Hollywood actor Lance Henriksen—to the screen. The movement has gained support from throughout the entertainment industry, including active involvement from Henriksen himself. Millennium aired on the Fox network for three seasons between 1996 and 1999. It tells the story of Frank Black, a legendary forensic profiler gifted with the ability to see into the minds of the killers he seeks. Through Frank Black’s work as a consultant with the FBI and the mysterious Millennium Group, the series offers a thoughtful exploration of the nature and manifestations of evil in the modern world. Millennium earned critical acclaim, as well as a number of awards and nominations, and remains highly regarded in the industry.
Chris Carter is best known as the creator and executive producer of The X-Files. With Ten Thirteen Productions, the production company he founded in 1993, Carter produced over 200 episodes of the hit series in addition to writing and directing a number of installments. He is the co-writer of two X-Files feature films and directed the most recent big screen outing, The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008). Carter created and produced Millennium and scripted a number of its episodes. In a previous interview, Carter told the Back to Frank Black campaign that he is interested in revisiting the character of Frank Black and the world of Millennium.
Frank Spotnitz joined production on The X-Files as a writer. He went on to script over 40 episodes of the series, serving as director on two. During his time on the series, The X-Files earned a Golden Globe award for Best Dramatic Series and Spotnitz received three Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Writer for a Drama Series. Spotnitz co-wrote the story for The X-Files: Fight the Future (1998) and both co-wrote and co-produced The X-Files: I Want to Believe with Chris Carter. He served as co-executive producer on Millennium. In previous podcast conversations with the Back to Frank Black campaign, Spotnitz also expressed an interest in revisiting Millennium and its hero.
Lance Henriksen remains a celebrated and active genre actor with a long and distinguished career. Best known for his role as the android Bishop in the Alien film franchise, his movies have taken over $2 billion at the worldwide box office to date. Henriksen starred as Millennium’s protagonist, Frank Black, a role that earned him three consecutive Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series (Drama), one for every year the show was on the air.
Back to Frank Black’s regular podcast, The Millennium Group Sessions, has interviewed a range of personalities, from lead actors, producers, and creators to guest stars. The podcast is available via iTunes and an app for both the iPhone and Android platforms. This milestone interview with Carter, Spotnitz, and Henriksen will be released as a podcast on February 4, 2011.
