Shorty after running our series of articles on XFilesNews, I was contacted by one of the two project managers behind the website Back To Frank Black. The site is devoted to seeing the central character of contacts at 20th Century Fox and FX, who stated that a project was not on their "radars" at the present time. Shortly after that, I wrote a fairly in depth article on the campaign and its history. Just this past week I had the chance to interview James McLean, one of the campaign’s two project managers, about their origins, their upcoming book and more., Frank Black, resurrected in one form or another. To see if this was possible I spoke with
