I had to immediately start preproduction on that, so I had to find a replacement really fast. And one of the things that we liked was that people had seen the first hour and thought it had more of a cinematic quality, so we thought we have to find a feature director to do the second hour. Who's available?

We would love for him to come back. He did a great job. He's a really sweet guy, and he had a great experience as well. We would love for him to do more.

Historically when people have been scared and nervous, there's been an uptick in science fantasy horror. You're telling allegorical tales and shining a light back on society.

I don't think four science- fiction shows are going to survive, but a couple probably will.

There have been lots of great shows that have complicated mythologies. It didn't seem to hurt The X-Files, and it doesn't seem to be hurting Lost.

I find out Peter Hyams was available, so I just called him and said, 'Can you help us out?' He said OK.
