Exclusive: Fourth Horseman Press’ upcoming Millennium tome has added some serious names to its already long list of contributors. In addition to the contributors we previously reported on (which includes, among others, series stars Lance Henriksen and Brittany Tiplady), I have just learned that series creator and executive producer Chris Carter, and co-executive producer Frank Spotnitz, have both made contributions to the title.
Currently targeted for a September release, the book (titled Back To Frank Black) promises a hitherto unprecendented volume of material exploring the 1990’s series. Back To Frank Black features forewards from Frank Spotnitz and Lance Henriksen and an all new introduction from Chris Carter. In addition, the book will also feature 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 front cover (pictured right) was designed by Matthew Ingles and illustrations used throughout the book were created by James S. McLean.
Created by Chris Carter, Millennium ran on Fox 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.
Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz are the most recent, and arguably most high profile, additions to the book’s list of contributors which also includes Lance Heriksen, award-winning author John Kenneth Muir, cast member Brittany Tiplady, Director of Photography Robert McLachlan, Joe Maddrey (co-author of Lance Henriksen’s biography), Paul Clark, Gordon Roberts, Joe Tangari, Alexander Zelenyj, Adam Chamberlain. Brian Dixon and James S. McLean & Troy Foreman (co-runners of a fan campaign dedicated to seeing Frank Black return in a feature film).
