The UK Writer in US TV (2)

They don't get rid of me that easily. I've now joined ABC's The Forgotten as co-executive producer, working as part of the team to bring creator Mark Friedman's vision to the screen in the fall schedule.
"The Forgotten Network" is a group of amateur detectives united in their quest to give names to unnamed victims, and to bring their murderers to justice. Led by Alex, a former detective haunted and driven by the disappearance of his own young daughter, these regular people gather in coffee shops or living rooms to discuss leads and clues and tips, each bringing their own motivations and skills to the table... working against the clock to give each victim a name, and to solve their cases. The Forgotten is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Warner Bros Television.
Alongside my duties on the show I've a deal to develop new material for JBTV, and I'm happy to be continuing the relationship with all the good people there, and at Warners, that began with Eleventh Hour.

And, hey... first NBC, then CBS, now ABC... it's like I'm working my way all around the room.

A bit like swine 'flu.

Congratulations!

I will certainly be tuning in to watch The Forgotton. It is great to see the brilliant Gallagher, Bruckheimer, Warner dream team still working together.

I can't wait!

Dear Mr. Gallagher,

So glad that you will be working again with JB and Warners and I wish you all the very best. I am a die hard Eleventh Hour fan though and my wish is to see this show return. One day, I hope it will.

That's great news! Congratulations. You'll be driving around L.A. in a convertible and calling everybody 'babe' and 'bro' in no time.

Mr. Gallagher, congratulations on this new project and I will definitely be following this new show. You and JB make a great team.
I'm a huge fan on Eleventh Hour and as many fans out there, we still want it back.
By the way, who's starring?
Good luck!

So glad to hear you'll be helping to bring more great stories to this side of the pond! I am really looking forward to your new TV show. Of course, I and many others, still miss Eleventh Hour more than we can say.
