The fun thing about doing a show like Night Stalker [Thursdays at 9 pm/ET, on ABC] is how different it is every week. This series takes a "minimovie" approach to television, where each episode is a different stand-alone mystery about the supernatural. Our task, week in and week out, is to make the unreal seem real.
Because each episode involves a different supernatural phenomenon, the production challenges vary enormously. In one episode, it's staging a chase in a subterranean cave, complete with computer-generated bats, puppeted creatures and stunts. The next, it's a tense psychological drama about a man in solitary confinement.
