The Others is an American TV series created by John Brancato and Michael Ferris, and produced by Delusional Films, NBC and DreamWorks Television. It ran for 13 40-minute episodes from February 5, 2000 to June 10, 2000, airing on NBC in the US, Five in the UK and Nine in Australia. It concerned a group of people with various psychic talents as they encountered different, and often evil, paranormal forces.

Essentially an ensemble show, primary focus was on student Marian Kitt as she came to terms with her (frequently unwanted) abilities. Although the series gradually built up an overall storyline of a strong evil power targeting the group, its cancellation meant that this was never properly resolved.

Famed horror director Tobe Hooper directed one episode, "Souls On Board", and the series' writers included Glen Morgan and James Wong (also executive producers, with Brancato and Ferris), who had previously written for shows including The X-Files and Millennium and created, produced and written for Space: Above and Beyond. Morgan's wife Kristen Cloke played the significant role of Allison/The Woman in the episodes "The Ones That Lie in Wait" and "Life Is for the Living".

The series was filmed at Paramount Studios, with the exception of the pilot episode, which was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Note that the episodes were seemingly broadcast out of order. The sixth episode "Luciferous" should have been the second episode as it deals with Marian's decision to join the group. The 12th episode "Life Is for the Living" should clearly have been the last one, as it is the end of the story (all of the main characters are apparently killed), a story which is oddly unresolved in the 13th episode. It is believed that episode 13 was delayed and should have been broadcast several episodes earlier.
