Indie-publisher Fourth Horseman Press are working on a new tome about the mid 1990’s TV series Millennium, TVWise has learned. This new book is set to be released this summer and I hear that amongst the book’s contributors is actor Lance Henriksen, who played leading man Frank Black in the series. I’m also told that a number of other high profile cast and/or crew members may be contributing to the book.
Tentatively titled ‘Back To Frank Black‘, this new book will feature a foreword written by Lance Henriksen, interviews with select members of the cast and crew and a number of other articles and essays which will explore the roots of the series, its various themes and myths, as well as the potential future of Millennium. The book’s title is drawn from the name of a fan campaign whose stated goal is to see the character of Frank Black return for either a feature film or a TV movie. Said campaign was created by James S. McLean who co-runs it alongside Troy Foreman, both of whom will also be contributing to the book. TVWise has also been able to confirm a number of other contributors, including award-winning author John Kenneth Muir, cast member Brittany Tiplady, Joe Maddrey (co-author of Lance Henriksen’s biography), Paul Clark, Gordon Roberts, Joe Tangari, Alexander Zelenyj, Adam Chamberlain and Brian Dixon.
For those of you who don’t recall: Millennium was created by Chris Carter and ran on the Fox network from October 25th 1996 to May 21st 1999. The series followed Frank Black, a former FBI agent and criminal profiler who was freelancing as a consultant for the Millennium Group. Millennium starred Lance Henriksen as Frank Black, Meghan Gallagher as Catherine Black and Klea Scott as Emma Hollis. The recurring cast for the series included Britany Tiplady as Jordan Black and Terry O’Quinn as Peter Watts. The series was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions with Chris Carter, Michael Duggan, Chip Johannessen, Glen Morgan and James Wong serving as executive producers.
Millennium has been ever present in the news of late. In recent comments to ComingSoon.net, while promoting upcoming animated series Tron: Uprising, series star Lance Henriksen commented that he believed a Millennium film was “going to happen.” In those comments, Henriksen also revealed, without going into too much detail, that he and a number of others from the series were working on this book.
TVWise will bring you more on the book just as soon as we have it.
