Doctor Who inspiration

9 Jul, 2014

mickey-fischer-extantSpielberg’s Co-Producer on Extant, Mickey Fisher, tells The Daily Telegraph in an interview that the classic British Science fiction series Doctor Who was a big inspiration for him while he was writing the Extant pilot.

Because I’m a big Doctor Who fan, I had a Post-it note on the corner of my monitor that said, ‘WWSMD; what would Steven Moffat do?’ [Doctor Who] has such a great heart at the centre of it, and I think that was really important to me. It’s not a dystopian world. We want [Extant] to be something that people could relate to, this story about this family that people would appreciate.
