  • Alex Gansa, executive producer of Wolf Lake was recently interviewed at Zap2It. The series has been cancelled by original network CBS, but will air on UPN after Enterprise from April 3rd. Asked whether he was hopeful that UPN would resurrect the show in some form, the executive producer said: "I think that [possibility is] implicit in the idea of putting us back on the air. [...] I don't know. I haven't heard. The cynic in me believes that there are advertising dollars to be made, but the idealist in me hopes that the show will spark and catch an audience on UPN, and we'll come back."
