Along with writing partner James Wong, Glen Morgan played a pivotal role in the success of The X-Files back in the day, penning many of the series' most acclaimed episodes (he introduced the world to Eugene Tombs in the unforgettable Squeeze for example). He also brought us the underappreciated Millennium, created the Final Destination series and remade Black Christmas (but let’s not touch that one). Now he’s set to return with an 8-part sci-fi/horror series newly greenlit by BBC America entitled Intruders, which is based on the 2007 novel by award-winning novelist Michael Marshall. Here’s the book’s official synopsis for those unfamiliar (like myself)…

Jack Whalen was an LAPD patrol cop for twelve years. He left under a cloud and now he's not sure what he is. One thing he does know is that he loves his wife, Amy. So when she goes missing on a routine business trip to Seattle, Jack sets out to search for her, only to discover something far more mysterious is going on.

Jack is contacted by a childhood acquaintance, Gary Fisher. Fisher, now a lawyer, wants help in solving a puzzle thrown up by a business man's will - but is there more to Gary's sudden reappearance in Jack's life than he's letting on?

Meanwhile a ten-year-old girl goes missing after an encounter with a sinister stranger. It gradually becomes clear, however, that she's very far from defenseless...

Searching for answers in the dark secrets of a past that still haunts him, Jack discovers that the truth has roots deeper and darker than he ever feared. 

Intrigued? Us too.

Production begins in Spring 2014 for a release later that year. Stay tuned for updates.
