We’ve been teasing you for a while regarding our latest project here at Back to Frank Black and now—on the fifteenth anniversary of the premiere of “Pilot“, no less—we can finally reveal what that is!
Long standing fans of Millennium will probably be familiar with Genge’s double volume Unofficial Companion to Season One, released in 1997, and Jane Goldman’s unpublished Official Companion to the series, but to date there has been no book available in print that considers the series in its entirety or that includes content from the series’ cast and crew. Back to Frank Black, in association with Fourth Horseman Press, has been working for some time to change that and we can now announce plans to publish a volume titled after the campaign itself.
The book will serve to further the goals of the campaign, releasing content in a new format in an effort to reach a still wider audience and lend additional impetus to the drive to return Frank Black to the screen, but also offers fans of the series a hitherto unprecedented quantity of related material. We will reveal more details in the coming weeks and months, but for now here is the full press release from Fourth Horseman Press…
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 25, 2011 — Fourth Horseman Press is proud to announce Back to Frank Black, an upcoming book based on the Fox television series Millennium (1996-1999) and produced in association with the titular campaign to return its protagonist and television’s greatest criminal profiler, Frank Black, to the screen.
Back to Frank Black offers fans of Millennium a hitherto unprecedented volume of material exploring this landmark series. The book features original essays from a number of authors with in-depth knowledge of the series—including Joseph Maddrey, co-author of Lance Henriksen’s autobiography Not Bad for a Human (2011), and media critic John Kenneth Muir—as well as exclusive material from the cast and crew, much of which is drawn from the wealth of interviews that the Back to Frank Black campaign has conducted for its distinctive series of online podcasts.
Back to Frank Black will be edited by Adam Chamberlain and Brian A. Dixon, publishers for Fourth Horseman Press and consultants to the Back to Frank Black campaign. The book will be made available in both print and digital editions with an expected publication date of early 2012. The collection will not be sold for profit and all proceeds will be donated to Lance Henriksen’s preferred registered charity, Children of the Night. For the latest news on the book’s release, visit backtofrankblack.com or follow the Back to Frank Black campaign on Twitter and Facebook. Publisher’s updates will be made available at fourthhorsemanpress.com as well as on Fourth Horseman Press’s Twitter and Facebook feeds.
