The show helped establish the network in its original run from 1993 until 2002. Also, The X-Files was produced by 20th Century Fox which Walden and Newman ran before moving to the network. If the project goes forward, they hope to have original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their original roles.

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in June 2009

July 6, 2009
Last month was particularly hard on television lovers. We lost a lot of indelible talent during June. Like their shows, there are a lot of talented people that won't be back in the Fall. They include David Carradine (The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, The Virginian, Wagon Train, Kung Fu, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, Charmed, Medium, Alias, and Jackie Chan Adventures), Ward Costello (The Edge of Night, The Streets of San Francisco, Little House on the Prairie, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Newhart, and General Hospital), Johnny Palermo (Passions, Campus Ladies, Just for Kicks, Everybody Hates Chris, and ER), Michael Roof (Hype and Raising the Roofs), Hal Riddle (Green Acres, The FBI, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Eight is Enough, The Waltons, and Dallas), Ken Roberts (Candid Camera, Love of Life, The Secret Storm, and The Electric Company), Anne Roberts Nelson (I Love Lucy, All in the Family, Gunsmoke, and The Young and The Restless), Lorena Gale (The X-Files, Smallville, Reunion, Bionic Woman (2007), The 4400, Battlestar Galactica, and Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins), Ed McMahon (Who Do You Trust?, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Star Search, TV Bloopers and Practical Jokes, and ALF's Hit Talk Show), Michael Jackson (Jackson 5ive, The Simpsons), Farrah Fawcett (I Dream of Jeannie, The Six Million Dollar Man, Charlie's Angels, Ally McBeal, The Guardian, Spin City, and Chasing Farrah), Gail Storm (My Little Margie, The Gale Storm Show, The Love Boat, and Murder, She Wrote), Billy Mays (Pitchmen), and Harve Presnell (The Pretender, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Dawson's Creek, and Andy Barker, PI). Here are the details... David Carradine, 72, was found dead in his hotel room in Central Thailand. He was there shooting a movie and his June 3rd death is still under investigation. Carradine was born in Hollywood, the son of actor John Carradine, and he is related to several other performers that share his last name. His early roles include those on The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, The Virginian, and Wagon Train. In the 1970s, he starred in the series Kung Fu as "Grasshopper" Kwai Chang Caine and it would become his most-successful television role. He was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the show. Carradine returned to the role in a TV movie in 1986, with Brandon Lee playing his son. Then, in the 1990s, he came back to series television in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues and played the grandson of his original character. He appeared in many movies over the years (most notably the Kill Bill movies) and guested on shows like Charmed, Medium, Alias, and Jackie Chan Adventures.

<em>Arrested Development:</em> Movie Plans Official; New Hope for Other Cancelled TV Shows?

Arrested Development: Movie Plans Official; New Hope for Other Cancelled TV Shows?

November 24, 2008
Though the Arrested Development TV show was cancelled after three seasons, the Bluths are going to the big screen. Is this good news for other cult-favorites like Pushing Daisies and Veronica Mars? Arrested Development centers around the wealthy Bluth family. At the center is widower Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman), who becomes the family business' CEO when his father, George Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor), is jailed. Michael tries to raise his son, George Michael (Michael Cera), while dealing with his eccentric clan's antics. The family includes manipulative mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), socially inept Byron "Buster" (Tony Hale), delusional George Oscar "Gob" (Will Arnett), adopted sister Lindsay (Portia de Rossi), her husband Tobias (David Cross), and their attention-starved daughter, Mae "Maeby" (Alia Shawkat). The series' narrated by Ron Howard and also features actors like Henry Winkler, John F. Beard, Mae Whitman, B.W. Gonzalez, Justin Lee, Liza Minnelli, Judy Greer, and Justin Grant Wade. Created by Mitchell Hurwitz, the TV show debuted on FOX on November 2, 2003. Though the series was a hit with critics, it never achieved ratings success. The network stuck with it for three seasons but ultimately pulled the plug after 53 episodes. The last original installment aired on February 10, 2006. Showtime reportedly wanted to pick up Arrested for another season but Hurwitz declined to be involved. He believed he'd taken the show as far as he could as a weekly series and that the cast was ready to move one. Showtime's interest dissolved.
