Eleventh Hour was a dream job. It was exactly the kind of show I wanted to work on, and the people I worked with were absolutely wonderful. But like all good dreams, it ended abruptly and way too soon.

I was hired because I’d written a spec pilot about a woman scientist who helped an FBI agent solve crimes that were carried out using cutting-edge science. Ethan Reiff and Cy Voris, who developed Eleventh Hour (based on a BBC miniseries starring Patrick Stewart) liked the script and asked me if I would be willing to rewrite it as a prospective episode. The show hadn’t officially been picked up by a network at that time, but the studio producing it (Warner Brothers) wanted a few backup episode scripts so that Ethan and Cy could hit the ground running if the show got a green light. I was only too happy to agree.

CBS bought Eleventh Hour, and my script became episode six, "Frozen." I wrote the story for another episode, "Electro," but the network pulled the plug after episode eighteen. As I was quickly learning, the longevity of Star Trek was a rare exception in the world of television. I haven’t been on a show since that made it past a single season. I still see my Eleventh Hour colleagues on a fairly regular basis and consider them all good friends. It’s rare for a TV staff to bond so quickly and closely. (Visit IMDB)
