DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE: John Noble and Debbie Myers Talk About Their SCIENCE Channel Relationship
July 14, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
For fans who have been missing FRINGE (and counting down the days until its September 28th season premiere), there is a potential fix for that — the second season premiere of the John Noble-hosted SCIENCE series, DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE, debuts tonight!
“I love John Noble,” Debbie Myers, general manager of SCIENCE told me about her channel’s relationship with the FRINGE star. “I love him in everything I’ve seen him in. I [was] obsessed with FRINGE from the first episode — the whole SCIENCE team was. So when we were creating a show called DARK MATTERS, I thought ‘This needs some John Noble’ and that’s how it started. Honestly. It was like a hand in a glove. We had a great show, and it needed a presence to breathe some life into it and that was John. And then we got our dream, which is FRINGE is coming, too, to SCIENCE [in syndication, starting in November].”
For Noble, the decision to partner with SCIENCE felt natural, too.
“It wasn’t too hard [of a decision],” Noble said. “It seemed like the perfect fit. I got this call that said, ‘This is strange. Read this and see what you think.’ And I thought, ‘This is really fun, what is it?’ And it was SCIENCE Channel, it turned out. And then we moved really quickly, we just squeezed [the production of season 1 of DARK MATTERS] in before we started last season of FRINGE. This time, we had a little more time to do it. These guys are amazing, so it’s been a pleasure all the way down the line.”
DARK MATTERS returns to SCIENCE Channel tonight at 10 PM. And if you happen to be in San Diego for Comic-Con, FRINGE’s final panel will take place Sunday at 10 AM in Hall H.
