Supernatural is a great show that currently airs on The CW. If you haven't heard of it, you're not alone. Supernatural isn't publicized too highly, making it one of network TV's hidden gems. John Shiban, an executive producer and writer on Supernatural is one of the most important cogs and driving forces behind Supernatural. John began his career as a staff writer on The X-Files; he was hired specifically by creator Chris Carter. From there, he moved his way that show's totem pole, becoming a producer then an executive producer. As you will read in this exclusive BuddyTV interview, Shiban was a big fan of the science fiction drama growing up and you can tell by the show's he has worked on that his fandom has helped him immensely.
Supernatural is a sci-fi drama about two brothers who travel the country in their 1967 Chevy Impala investigating and thwarting supernatural terrors. Like X-Files there is mythology involved; their parents died mysteriously. There are also countless stand alone episodes, creating a refreshing sort of movie of the week kind of vibe. An upcoming episode plays off the legend of the missing colony of Roanoke.
The science fiction genre has blown up in recent years in the mainstream media, especially on television. Shiban attributes this to the iffy state of the world and that people have, historically, fed off of fantasy during these trying times. This can be witnessed by the popularity of shows like Heroes and Battlestar Galactica. Supernatural is on its way to success, growing in viewers as the series has progressed, also doing quite well in some key demographics. For science fiction fans out there, there's nothing better on television.
