“Sept. 10th, 2019
Coming Soon”

Sep-10, that’s #TheXFiles anniversary of the pilot airing. Relevant? Coincidence? Launch of Frank Spotnitz’s new website, now that the Big Light social network has been shut down? Or something more?…

So it was Frank’s new website after all!


I am pleased to introduce my official website, https://www.frankspotnitz.com.

#TheXFiles turns 26 today, as the pilot aired this day in 1993!
Here is the oldest entry in our TenThirteen interviews database, dating from…August 1993, before the pilot had even aired and when Fox had not even made a full season order. Young 37-year-old Chris Carter said:


“There is no gunfire in the first six episodes,” he said. “I’m really concerned about violence in our society. There’s too much violence on television. Producers should be responsible, to a point, while telling an exciting story. Like ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ we’ll show the results of violence, not the act.”

Fond memories of ABC’s “The Night Stalker,” a 1974-75 series with Darren McGavin as a reporter tracking vampires and werewolves, gave Carter a “leaping-off point” when he started developing “The X-Files” last year. “That was a good, scary show,” he said. “And it aired on Friday nights, too.”

But “The Night Stalker” vanished after one season. Fox has ordered 13 episodes of “The X-Files.” In its most-unwanted time slot, it could be an ex-series by December.

“I’d rather air right after ‘The Simpsons,’ ” Carter said. “But I know Fox would never put me there.”

The new #TheXFiles videogame hinted at by Chris Carter last year is upon us! It is developed by @[784484218558997:274:Storyscape] in collaboration with FOX, and consists of an interactive narrative/dialogue together with animation, for Android. The look of it reminds me a lot of last year’s “Deep State” Android game, but with more storytelling and less click-for-points. You play characters who come across Mulder and Scully and Skinner (and Doggett?) — this looks like a “next generation” story where new FBI agents are trained by the older.

–> It is written by Sean Kelley McKeever (who did comics prior). Interview: https://www.storyscape.com/en/blog/meet-the-agents

–> For now, only people in Canada and New Zealand can play the first 3 parts, “Trial by Ice”, but as with any game on the internet there’s already a gameplay video out there to get a taste:

Sad #TheXFiles locations news! The dockside warehouse featured prominently in the XF video game from 1998 in Tacoma WA has been destroyed – according to Google Maps somewhere between Sep and Oct 2018 (https://goo.gl/maps/o31Tib2o17L7wsps5). It’s all the more frustrating since I almost visited it in my tour last year, it turned out barely days before it was torn down… (http://www.eatthecorn.com/2018/09/10/vancouver-25-years-later/)

As 2019 draws to a close and post-revival excitement dies down, the biggest development on #TheXFiles front by far is the growing concern for preservation – in the form of The X-Files Preservation Collection
With promise of big things to come in 2020!
Happy new year!

From Jim and Kelly’s welcome post to their preservation group:

” The X-Files Preservation Collection is now the home to many iconic pieces from the series and movies. We have thousands of screen used items and we are constantly searching for items to add. Once an item is here it remains here and we do all we can to preserve it.

The purpose of the collection is to Preserve the history of the series and to share it with other fans and create new fans. We are currently in the process of registering the collection as a Not for Profit LLC and will be opening a museum in 2020. We cannot wait to share our Preservation Collection with all of you. We have many plans and ideas to make it more of an experience than your usual museum. “
