Back in Sept. 2007 Slice of SciFi’s Linda Craddock did an interview with “Tin Man” creators Steven Long Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle. During their conversation with Linda they let it slip that the possibility of seeing their other popular series, “The Pretender,” could be resurfacing in a new media format. Since then Pretender fans have been chomping on the bit waiting for more a fitting conclusion to Jared’s (Michael T. Weiss) adventures. It’s been 6 months and as such Craig felt it was time to update everyone by dropping these comments to Slice of SciFi.
“Steve and I are touched by your loyalty and love for ‘The Pretender.’ Please know that often times things grind slowly in Hollywood and such is the case for our desire to get you all final answers for ‘The Pretender’ and to give this series that is so dear to us a fitting and rewarding conclusion. When Steve and I talk about a final episode/movie, our intent is genuine — it just takes time, undoubtedly longer than any of us hope for. Just know we are working to make this a reality and that we so appreciate all of your kind words and patience.”
