The entertainment business in Berlin has been suffering from multiple industry follies such as; writer's block, ephemeral series, and an "extreme case of the Mondays where nothing seems to go right.” Luckily, the producers of long-time running American television shows such as Frank Spotnitz, producer/writer/director of The X-Files, as well as Neil Baer (Law & Order), have been tapped to attend the European TV Drama Series Lab 2012 in Berlin. Frank Spotnitz and other producers “will describe the importance of a showrunner in US productions.”
“The event, organised by the Potsdam-based Erich Pommer Institut in association with MediaXchange, is spilt across two workshops, taking place on April 24-29 and June 9-15.” The first workshop will focus more on narrative structures of series (which is where Mr. Spotnitz will be) while the second module is dedicated to exploring the US concept of the writers room.

If you thought Gillian Anderson, Robert Patrick and Mitch Pileggi were enough to create an X-Files reunion at Calgary Expo this coming spring, think again.
