‘Dark Angel’ descends on DGA

Cameron tries his hand at diversification

At Monday’s DGA screening of Fox Broadcasting’s “Dark Angel,” co-creator James Cameron said there were a number of reasons he opted for working in television: to “diversify in a different, visual story-telling medium”; this was the first time he’d clicked on working with a co-writer/creator — Charles Eglee; and he’s hoping the show will “transcend its boundaries.”

“The thing you can use to transcend your boundaries in television is the performance of the actors as driven by the writing,” Cameron said. “A good actor in a tight close-up isn’t going to be any better in a feature than he will be on our show.”

Among those seeing his show were Fox’s Sandy Grushow, Gail Berman, Dana Walden, Gary Newman and Senn Moses, star Jessica Alba; plus 600 guests including Tom Arnold, Frances Fisher, Gloria Stuart, Bill Paxton, Christopher Titus and Suzy Amis.
