Alien Nation - Eyewitness News

In the early '90s, Charlie Kaufman was a writer for TV. Here's a script from the short lived action/adventure comedy Alien Nation. The script was co-written by a Charles S. Kaufman, Larry B. William, Steve Long Mitchell and Craig M. Van Sickle. Is this "our" Charlie Kaufman? Hard to say for sure, but the timing's right, as is the middle initial, and Alien Nation was a Fox show; "our" Charlie did work for Fox around this period. Interestingly, the script contains a character named Kaufman... early hints of the self-referential humour that would later become Kaufman's trademark?
