X-FILES VET TO DIRECT NIGHT STALKER
Variety reports that producer Frank Spotnitz has hired Daniel Sackheim to helm the pilot for the new NIGHT STALKER series he?s got going for ABC. Sackheim directed numerous episodes of THE X FILES, on which Spotnitz served as an executive producer and writer, as well as the Leelee Sobieski-starring psychothriller THE GLASS HOUSE. 'Dan understands this genre and how to get [on camera] what you need to scare people,' Spotnitz tells the trade. 'A lot of directors can talk a good game, but when you get to the soundstage, they can?t deliver the goods. Dan?s not one of those guys.' Spotnitz also promises a 'very contemporary, sleek and scary look' for the new adventures of reporter/monster hunter Carl Kolchak.
