Night Stalker was a short-lived American supernatural television series produced by Touchstone Television and Big Light Productions. It aired on ABC for one season from September, 2005 to March, 2006 spanning a total of ten episodes. The series was loosely based on the original 1970s Kolchak: The Night Stalker television series as well as the two telemovies The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler. In the series, actor Stuart Townsend played the role of investigative reporter Carl Kolchak, a character made famous by original actor Darren McGavin. Kolchak is presented as an obsessed reporter, hunting down occult-related phenomena in the hopes of solving the mystery behind the death of his wife, Irene. Assisting Kolchak in this endeavor is his supporting cast, which consists of partner Perri Reed (Gabrielle Union), boss Tony Vincenzo (Cotter Smith) and Eric Jungmann in the role of Jain McManus. The series was cancelled due to to poor rating and ABC only aired the first six episodes. The Sci-Fi Channel licensed the rights to the show and aired the series in its entirety in 2006. All ten episodes were collected on the Night Stalker: The Complete Series DVD collection, which was released on May 30th, 2006.
