ABC has ordered a pilot of an updated Night Stalker series from former The X-Files executive producer Frank Spotnitz, Variety reported. The show will rework the classic 1970s ABC show Kolchak: The Night Stalker, which detailed a hard-boiled journalist's investigations into freakish occurrences, the trade paper reported.
Ironically, The X-Files creator Chris Carter has said he was inspired in part by the original Night Stalker series, which starred Darren McGavin.
Millennium: The Complete Second Season , the second volume in the Millennium DVD collection, hits store shelves in the United States and Canada today. The Region 1 box set contains all twenty-three episodes of the show's remarkable second year and offers a total of 989 minutes. Executive Producers Glen Morgan and James Wong guided Frank Black on a brave new journey in the show's second year, exploring dark mythologies and twisted conspiracies. These stunning episodes, many of them among the best the series ever produced, have been completely unavailable to Americans since the turn of the millennium itself. The six-disc collection also contains never-before-seen documentaries, featurettes, and commentaries offering viewers a glimpse behind the scenes. "With Morgan and Wong at the helm, season two further explores the dark and fantastical, but becomes a lot more surreal, but no less fascinating," declares Amazon.com's editorial review. "So whether you are drawn to stories about dark serial killers, the ongoing tales of conspiracies, familiar comedies, or the bizarre, season two has something for you." Visit the Abyss DVD page to review the set's complete features or to learn more about the collection's predecessor and successor. Millennium: The Complete Second Season can be found at such retailers as Amazon.com, Best Buy, and Wal-Mart.
