4400 Changes Unveiled

12:00 AM, 07-MARCH-06

McKenziee_4400_tn.jpg

Ira Steven Behr, co-creator of USA Network's SF series The 4400, told SCI FI Wire to expect a new direction in the show's upcoming third season that will focus more on the show's mythology and main characters. He added that a new actress will join the regular cast: Megalyn Echikunwoke.

"We are definitely using the last two episodes of last season, 'The Fifth Page' and 'Mommy's Bosses,' as the engine to drive this season," Behr said in an interview. "In other words, last year we kind of alternated kind of big mythology type of episodes ... [with episodes in which] we'd introduce the 4400, they would have a problem that either affected them or affected society in general, and we would deal with that problem. ... What we're going to be focusing on basically this season [is] bigger sweep. I call it playing big ball rather than little ball. ... I think every story this year will have an impact on our people."

In a spoiler for the upcoming season, Behr also said that Echikunwoke would join the cast, playing an adult version of baby Isabelle.

"Isabelle is no longer that cuddly kid you can hold in your arms, which is, I think, probably great for production," Behr said, referring to the difficulty of working with an infant actor. Echikunwoke will be "a very popular addition to the cast," he added. "The character herself, I think, is going to surprise people. I think people have been arguing about or trying to figure out Isabelle at the end of the miniseries, and I think ... a portion of the audience is going to expect a fastball down the middle with her character, and I think they're going to be surprised. It's going to be more of a ride, more of a discovery, and not so clear-cut where you can say, 'She's the angel' [or] 'She's the devil,' you know? And I think that makes for really nice storytelling." The 4400 returns with 13 new episodes, starting June 4. USA Network is owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.

Can 4400's Diana See the Future?

by Matt Webb Mitovich

060602insider1.jpg

Jacqueline McKenzie, The 4400

The Season 3 premiere of USA Network's The 4400 (returning June 11 at 9 pm/ET) is now little more than a week away, but intel on the new season is still hard to come by. TVGuide.com called Jacqueline McKenzie, the Aussie actress who plays NTAC agent Diana Skouris, to see what (if anything!) she has heard about this year's big twists.

TVGuide.com: I was just checking out your MySpace page, and you've got some interesting people dropping by: costar Karina Lombard, Jeff Daniels, singer Joni Mitchell....

Jacqueline McKenzie: Yeahhhh! Well, you don't know that they're actually [those] people.

TVGuide.com: Oh, sure they are. People on the Internet never pretend to be someone else!

McKenzie: [Chuckles] Some of them are, but some of them aren't. Did you follow the link to my official website? I only just opened that a few weeks ago.

TVGuide.com: I noticed it still had that new plastic smell to it. I like how the site details your other passions, like music and painting.

McKenzie: That's kind of why I did it. I have this obsession with painting, so it's kind of good to have them up there, you know?

TVGuide.com: Let's talk about The 4400: What can you tease about this season?

McKenzie: Um, well, there's quite a journey ahead for Diana. We're only now shooting [Episode] 7 out of 13, and I tell you, they're really secretive, our bosses. I come from the land of, "Don't tell them what's happening," but I don't even know myself. In fact, yesterday when we were on set, [costar] Joel [Gretsch] and I were trying to work out a scene, and I was saying to him, "I really think that this character has got more to do with this group than it says on the page." It's literally myself and Joel trying to work out what the hell's going on, because [executive producer-writer] Ira [steven Behr] won't tell us! [Laughs] We try to piece it together, which is good in that it gives it a very real quality where we don't know what's going on. But I'm so happy to give you Ira's number so you can call him! In terms of my character, I get to do a lot with Conchita [Campbell, Maia] again, and I love that. This year it's not so much one 4400 per episode, it's more like the 4400 as a group and what's happening to them. I love that as a concept.

TVGuide.com: What's going on with Diana's relationship with Maia?

McKenzie: It's deepening and strengthening.

TVGuide.com: Do you like having that mother-daughter dynamic to play?

McKenzie: I really, really love it. Conchita was a lovely actress when she first arrived three years ago, and I'm watching her develop and flourish. She is so clued in to where that camera is, what it's doing and how she can help the camera guys by delivering a line in a certain way or cheating certain angles

Campbell Absent From 4400

12:00 AM, 06-JUNE-06

campbell_4400_tn.jpg

Ira Steven Behr, executive producer of USA Network's The 4400, told SCI FI Wire that key player Billy Campbell, who played 4400 leader Jordan Collier, hasn't returned from his holiday as part of the crew of a sailing ship on an 18-month, around-the-world cruise, though the show is already in production on the ninth episode of its upcoming 13-episode third season. But Campbell will return soon to shoot the season's final episodes.

"From the very beginning of the season, of course, we knew that Billy Campbell was taking off to go sailing for 18 months on his tall ship," Behr said in an interview in his West Hollywood, Calif., office last week. "So we knew we were going to lose him, right, and then get him back. But we knew we were going to lose him."

Campbell's character, the charismatic leader of a group of returned abductees with special powers, appeared to have been assassinated last season, but showed up briefly in the surprising final scenes of the season finale. But the show won't pick up the story of Collier's apparent resurrection for a while, and writers have had to write around Campbell's absence, Behr said. "You will hear about him [before that]," Behr said, adding: "You're not going to see Jordan until the 11th episode. ... There's going to be things along the way that keeps the mind wondering, ... but, no, you will not ... be seeing the living, breathing guy [until then]."

Campbell had informed the producers that he would be taking off on the cruise, but "we thought he'd get bored," Behr admitted. "It's not a vacation. He's an active crew member, so he works every day, you know, ... hauling the riggings up and down and down and up. He was telling us this two years ago, and I thought he was lying. I was like, 'What?' We knew he wasn't going to be back for the beginning of the season, but we did not think [it would be this long]. ... I had a couple of very funny e-mails with Billy, who loves the show. ... [He] was, you know, 'I can't wait to come back,' blah blah blah. ... And I'm going, 'Huh?' 'Well, yeah.' ... I'm like, 'OK. Tick. Tick. Tick.'" The 4400 returns at 9 p.m. ET/PT on June 11 with a two-hour season premiere. USA is owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.

The 4400: Who's Out, In and Returning!

by Matt Webb Mitovich

060609insider2.jpg

Billy Campbell (Jordan) and Joel Gretsch (Tom), The 4400

Buckle up, fans of USA Network's The 4400, because the twists and turns are about to come at you a good 4,400 miles per hour. The two-hour Season 3 premiere (Sunday at 9 pm/ET) alone uncorks some shockers that promise to change the pace and direction of the show forever, as well as to bid farewell to a familiar face or two. All of which raises the question: Will this be the wildest 4400 season yet?

"We certainly hope so," executive producer Maira Suro tells TVGuide.com, pointing out that that is precisely the message being communicated by the show's massive ad campaign. "Creatively, we're still putting out the best show we know how to do, but we hope to get a lot of new viewers. At the same time, we've got great surprises and more of the exciting pace that has made us the show that we are."

Indeed, serial shockers and a breakneck pace are the stuff The 4400 will really be made of this time around, kicked off by the emergence of the rapidly aged Isabelle (now played by newcomer Megalyn Echikunwoke) and the simultaneous exit of an original cast member. "There are huge plans for grown-up Isabella," promises Suro. "She is very much the center of this third season, as part of a pretty big phenomenon that we kick off with."

-That new phenomenon dictated the departure of Laura Allen, who had been playing Lily, Isabella's twentysomething mother, since The 4400's July 2004 debut. "When you have a big ensemble, and you're trying to grow that ensemble creatively to see where the stories can go and what new places you can take the audience to, sometimes you're forced to make tough kinds of choices," Suro explains. "This was one of them."-

Back to the topic of souped-up storytelling, Suro says the plan to progress the story at a quicker clip came up last season. "We decided that the episodes that worked best and the ones fans gravitated to more were the ones where our core characters were involved in major dilemmas, as opposed to meeting '4400s of the week' who may or may not impact our core character," she recalls. "So there was a very conscious choice that this be the season we just don't let up. There will be moments where we let the audience catch their breath, but for the most part, that's our plan."

Speaking of plans, what are the nefarious government types on The 4400 going to do now that their covert Promicin inhibitor plot has been exposed, forcing Peter Coyote's Ryland before a rather torturous congressional hearing? "Knowing what I know about Season 3, what I would say is that Promicin was just the beginning," Suro teases. "That is just the beginning of much bigger plans that the government has in terms of how they're going to deal with the 4400."

-

Might the 4400's Christ-like Jordan Collier, last glimpsed in the Season 2 finale, "return from the grave" to save his kind from trouble, perhaps in the form of the Nova group, which evolves into a militant group of 4400 rebels this season? If so, Jordan's appearance won't be until much later on, due to the fact that his portrayer, Billy Campbell, left his bosses in a tiny lurch by embarking on an 18-month, around-the-world cruise. "It wasn't the best news we've heard," Suro tells us with a laugh. "But Billy was committed to doing it, and fortunately we were able to work out something where he still could be a part of the show."

And how. "It's late in the season" when Jordan appears, "and when he does, it kicks into high gear," says Suro. "It's a big piece that falls into place, a locomotive that takes you through the end."-

I have to admit, NBC's little tickler episode caught me. I feel like fish in a net!!!

Anyway, as I was watching last night's episode, I am just wondering, when your trying to catch someone you think telepathically got a lawyer to totally shank his client in the middle of the hearing...why do you yell, "Hey!"? Why didn't he just run up to TJ? I guess same can be asked of Jack Bower, Jack Shepard and entire cast of Law & Order and CSI.

What Happened To 4400's Lily?

allen_4400_tn.jpg

Viewers of the June 11 third-season premiere of USA Network's The 4400 learned the fate of a key character, and executive producer Ira Steven Behr told SCI FI Wire that the change came about unexpectedly as a result of a business issue with one of the show's regular cast members. (Spoilers ahead!) In the two-hour premiere, "The New World," the character of Lily Moore, previously played by series regular Laura Allen, aged suddenly by 50 years and was played by guest star Tippi Hedren (The Birds). At the end of the episode, Lily died. Allen was seen only in a brief flashback as the young Lily, and Allen won't be back. Behr said in an interview last week that it wasn't his initial choice not to have Allen or Lily back.

"At the beginning of the season, when we met with the network to start talking about the new season, we pitched the series that had Laura Allen in it," Behr said in his office in West Hollywood, Calif. "And events kind of took hold on their own, and I was basically told that she wasn't going to be back. And we [came] back to [rewrite] the opening two hours, and we had to, you know, change course."

Behr didn't detail the issue that led to Allen's departure from the show, but confirmed that it was "a business thing. Yeah. It was not a creative decision, ultimately. It was a business decision. And, as I was saying, there's ... just so many things that I'm sure you hear all the time from people on shows. They're just money decisions and business decisions, and there's a lot of people with a lot of say in all these things. A lot of people who have to answer to a lot of other people who don't have any dealings with [us], and it just ... got out of hand. And, suddenly, there you go. So you just move on."

Had Allen remained with the show, Behr said, it's possible her character would have aged in any case. "I will say this, though," he said. "One of the stories we had for her did involve her getting older, so that was going to be in there, but that was going to be an arc that was going to end in a slightly different way. But, you know, these things happen all the time." The 4400 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT. USA is owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.

Gretsch and McKenzie Make '4400' Connections

By Kate O'Hare, Zap2it

June 19 2006

23942905.jpg

Joel Gretsch and Jacqueline McKenzie on 'The 4400'

For its second issue of 2006, Emmy magazine, the publication of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, focused on science fiction, including a fashion spread with Joel Gretsch and Jacqueline McKenzie of the USA Network series "The 4400," which launched its third season on June 11.

They play Tom Baldwin and Diana Skouris, government agents coping with 4,400 people who vanished over the course of about 60 years, then returned suddenly on a beach with no memory, not having aged a day and with supernatural abilities granted to them by abductors from the future.

"That [spread] was all right, wasn't it?" says McKenzie, relaxing on the outdoor terrace of a swanky Pasadena, Calif., hotel. She and Gretsch have taken a break from filming season three in Vancouver, British Columbia, to be part of press day organized by NBC Universal, which includes NBC, USA, Sci-Fi Channel, Bravo, etc.

"Joel and I were modeling at the same time," she says.

Next to her, Gretsch sits up. "I've never modeled a day in my life. What are you talking about?"

Turns out that Gretsch is a fibber.

"He fronted a campaign in Australia for our version of Banana Republic, which is Country Road," says McKenzie, a native Aussie. "I remember walking down Martin Place in Sydney and seeing this huge poster. I'd never seen a bigger one. I remember thinking, 'God, this is America all of a sudden.' It's a blond dude with blue eyes, tan skin, and I thought, 'Wow, they've chosen an American to do the Australian Country Road campaign.' I could totally tell, which is strange, because to all intents and purposes, he could be Aussie.

"It's just a chiseled thing -- gorgeous, hunky and definitely American. The weird thing is, however many years later, I walk into a room, and it's him."

"I was modeling," Gretsch says, "and I didn't want anybody here to see me, because I wanted to be an actor."

The season-three premiere of "The 4400" featured a guest appearance by Tippi Hedren as the older version of the Lily Moore Tyler character, originally played by Laura Allen. Coincidentally, Alfred Hitchcock discovered Hedren while she was working as a model and cast her in "The Birds."

"What an amazing woman she is," Gretsch says. "She looks phenomenal."

"I walked into work yesterday," McKenzie says, "and there was a present on the stand of Janet the hair lady. I said, 'Is it your birthday?' She said, 'No, it's just a present from Tippi.'"

After a highly rated and critically lauded launch in the summer of 2004 as a limited series, "The 4400" struggled to find its feet during its second season, which was nevertheless successful enough to earn it a third. This season, the mysteries and conspiracies surrounding the 4400 that were introduced at the end of season two have deepened and broadened.

At the core of that mystery is Isabelle, Lily's daughter with fellow 4400 Richard Tyler (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali). She went from an infant to a 20-something woman (Megalyn Echikunwoke) at the end of season two, a transition explained by Lily's premature aging and death in the June 11 premiere.

.Fans can also expect the return of Billy Campbell, who played assassinated 4400 tycoon and leader Jordan Collier. He appeared to have come back to life -- a bit shaggier than when he left -- at the end of season two. But Campbell won't be back until later in the season. He can't appear sooner because the actor wasn't scheduled to come back from a round-the-world sailing voyage until June 17 -- so that shaggy look could come in handy..

New elements are also added in a two-part episode called "Gone," airing June 25 and July 2, in which the show revisits the season-one revelation that the 4400 are part of a plan from the future to save mankind.

Those episodes guest star Alice Krige, whose long list of credits includes such diverse projects as "Ghost Story," "Chariots of Fire," "Star Trek: First Contact" (as the Borg Queen), "Children of Dune" and season two of HBO's Western "Deadwood."

In another coincidence, that season of "Deadwood" also guest starred "4400" recurring star Garret Dillahunt as a geologist working for mining magnate George Hearst. He was also a killer, and his victims included Deadwood madam Maddie, played by Krige.

"That's right!" Gretsch says. "It's such a small world."

According to Gretsch, the information revealed in that two-parter affected not only his character.

"It's quite revealing and disturbing, in a wonderful way," Gretsch says. "I cannot tell you what it is, but I was surprised. It scares me. I'll tell you the truth, when I read it, it was one sense of impact on me. But when we actually shot it ... it had this impact -- because I'm a father of two children -- that made me feel like this is possible for our future. It literally scared me.

"I got emotional in the scene internally. It hit me in a place where I thought, 'Dammit, this is the way the future is going.' I had that feeling. So from that standpoint, I think we're getting back to the core of the first season."

"In the first season," McKenzie says, "it's letterbox; it's epic. It's like we're on the outside as an audience looking in. Everything's shot with those wide angles.

"And in the second season, it was almost like the screen had been pulled back, and we were allowed to walk into the world amongst the characters.

"In this season, I feel like you're not just walking amongst us, you're with us. It feels like it's a rollicking ride again."
