[It's 2005 and] "Eureka" Co-Creators Jaime Paglia and Andrew Cosby have just sold "Eureka" as a series and are writing the pilot script. Their first version, which everyone loves, centers around a funny monster-of-the-week story about Bigfoot. Then the script goes up the food chain and marching orders come back from the Network saying, "No monster-of-the-week" stories, especially not for the pilot." Their reasoning was that viewers would tune in and think that "Eureka" was an "X-Files" rip-off, and that each week audiences would be treated to yet-another creepy creation of some sort. So Jaime and Andy rewrote the pilot script again. From scratch. The story they came up with the second time around is the pilot you know and love... But the unintended consequences of that scenario have been and continue to be a singular mantra: "No monster stories on Eureka!" That is, until now.
