‘The 4400’ Fans Not Blurring Lines Between Fantasy And Reality

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Sci-Fi series The 4400 has a rabid cult audience but, luckily, it doesn’t have a rabid cult.

The show’s premise involves what happens when 4400 people who mysteriously disappear suddenly reappear with strange powers.

The 4400 producer Jacqueline McKenzie admits the series is based “on a kernel of truth” but, luckily, the show’s fans haven’t blurred the line between fantasy and reality like the Star Trek geeks who adopt the Klingon lifestyle or the Star Wars freaks who become Jedi knights.

McKenzie should know. She closely monitors 4400 fan sites and says, so far, the fans are relating to the idea of being caught in a world they never made.

In her words, “The premise is meant to be a metaphor for life after 9/11: How do you go back to living a normal life after a major life-changing event?”

The 4400 has its season premiere on the USA network this Sunday (Jun. 11).
