Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Miracle Day'' was come upon after the series creator Russell T. Davies found his efforts to sell the format rights to the major American networks were hitting a brick wall. Davies wanted to retain continuity ties to the British series, including John Barrowman in the lead role, whereas most of the people he was in talks with at the networks suggested [[TransatlanticEquivalent remaking the show wholesale for American audiences]], including recasting all of the lead roles, as well as downplaying/dropping Jack's omnisexuality (details vary on the full extent of this). Davies eventually found Starz Entertainment, who were the only guys that were happy to make a true co-production to Davies' specifications.
