Heh. With Condi Rice's testimony today, I figured it was appropriate to point out an old video I've had laying around on my computer for a few years now. In mid-2000, Fox held a sales conference for The Lone Gunmen. The filesystem timestamp on the file on my computer is June 4th of that year, so the actual conference probably happened a few days before then. It shows some scenes from the pilot, which finally aired nine months later on March 4th, 2001. Of course, in the episode, the plane that was flown toward the World Trade Center was controlled from the ground through a high-tech linkup (and the good guys ultimately prevailed).
(You have to go about 90 seconds into the video to get to the relevant bits, but there's a whole trailer…)Posted by mike at April 8, 2004 12:01 PM | September 11th , TV | TrackBack
