- Episode Description
X-Files creator Chris Carter discusses his new movie-The X-Files: I Want to Believe-and the show that started it all. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Chris Carter, his 2008 X-Files movie (which he wrote and directed), and the iconic Fox TV series that spawned it. Airing from 1993 to 2002, The X-Files beguiled critics and viewers alike, nailing the zeitgeist on the head at a time when radio talk show hosts fueled a grassroots movement suspecting conspiracies behind almost every action emanating from the White House. Chris Carter had set out just to make a scary little show in the tradition of Kolchak: The Night Stalker, but ended up with a Peabody and sixteen Emmys, a legion of die-hard fans, and scholarly articles analyzing his seminal work. Barbara Dixon (director, The Paley Center for Media, Los Angeles) welcomes the audience and introduces Variety's Cynthia Littleton, who moderates the following panelists: writer Steven Maeda, producer/director Rob Bowman, post production supervisor Paul Rabwin, writer Darin Morgan, co-executive producer Glen Morgan, producer/director David Nutter, executive producer Howard Gordon; actors Nicholas Lea (Alex Krycek), Dean Haglund (Langly), and Mitch Pileggi (FBI Asst. Dir. Walter Skinner); executive producer/writer/director Frank Spotnitz; and creator/executive producer Chris Carter.moreless
