Reporter Debrah Lewis is back to write about her X-files experience.
We spoke to Lewis about the experiences of her first year at CBS News, her X Files experience and her experience with her new role as a writer for the new “X-Files” podcast.
“I remember the first day I started,” Lewis told us.
“My first day was so scary.
I just got out of my car and I just had to get on the line and say hello to everyone.
And I started screaming because it was the first time I had done that.
And then, as soon as I said hello, the guys started to scream.
And as soon I started saying hello, they started to yell.
And there were people on the other end of the line who were like, “How’s it going?”
And I was like, ‘Oh, it’s going great.'”
Lewis said she didn’t think it would end that way, but it did.
“It was a very, very scary day,” Lewis said.
“And the next day, it was a lot better.”
And the best part?
“I learned so much,” she said.
We talked to Lewis in her office in the New York Times building on Monday and got her to talk about what it was like to be part of the first X-film, “The Day of the Jackal,” and how she and co-writer Michael Crichton were introduced to a “special agent” character named Leland.
We also talked to the producer of the new X-movie, James Wong, about his experience on the show and how he is looking forward to working with Crichman.
