Sci Fi Breathes Life into 'Night Stalker'

(Posted December 15, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

"Night Stalker," which lasted but seven weeks on ABC this fall, will get some new life next year thanks to the Sci Fi Channel.

The cable network has acquired rights to the entire series, which includes three episodes that never made it onto the air. Sci Fi will air all 10 episodes sometime next summer.

"Night Stalker" joins a roster of genre shows on Sci Fi that have been discarded by broadcast networks. The channel enjoyed success with "Firefly" repeats earlier this year and has also served as a second home for shows like "Now & Again" and "Roar" in the past.

The pickup of "Night Stalker" means that Sci Fi will now own both versions of the show. The network also airs episodes of "Kolchak: The Night Stalker," the 1970s cult favorite on which the new show was based.

The new "Night Stalker," which starred Stuart Townsend as Carl Kolchak, a reporter with a nose for the supernatural, and Gabrielle Union, had a rough go this fall airing opposite the No. 1 show on TV, CBS' "CSI." It averaged a scant 5.26 million viewers in its time on the air.
