Quote:Spyglass Entertainment's Roger Birnbaum, producer of ABC's upcoming supernatural series Miracles, told SCI FI Wire that the show will explore dark forces that pursue the protagonist, played by Skeet Ulrich. "This is a show that will be watching this man, who's trying to find his faith again, exploring not just miracles, but all kinds of odd occurrences that are going around that we find are fueled by some sort of darkness, and the darkness is coming for him," Birnbaum said in an interview.
Birnbaum brought aboard David Greenwalt to run the show because of his experience on genre series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff, Angel, on which he served as executive producer. "He brings an enormous amount of expertise in handling shows that we at Spyglass have never done before," Birnbaum said. "This is our first foray into television."
Miracles begins shooting in August for a midseason timeslot. Birnbaum joked about ABC's decision to hold the series until January. "It wasn't my decision," he said. "That was ABC's decision. I think it had something to do with saving the best for last."

Quote:His parents divorced when he was 3, and he told Interview that life was "kinda hectic...My dad has been married a lot." His first nickname was "Skeeter", from a Little League coach who said he was tiny, like a mosquito. He decided to shorten it to "Skeet" when he saw a TV movie featuring a girl named Skeeter. "I didn't even go to my prom," he told The Record. "I didn't have one date in high school." He told Details, "I scored a 910 on my SAT. I didn't care about education. I don't know what I cared about." He lost a bid for a college scholarship when he punched out a rival soccer player in high school. "As an actor, I think you want to keep your demons," he told Interview. Once he interrupted an interview with Details by peeing on the side of a building, in front of the writer. He has a long scar on his chest from open-heart surgery done when he was 10 to correct a ventricle defect. "As a kid I used to pretend I was like John Denver, of all people, and play the guitar and sing, 'Take Me Home, Country Roads,' he told Interview.
