With Fringe coming to a close on Friday, January 18 with a two-hour series finale, The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills recently held a special screening of tonight’s new episode followed by a Q&A with showrunner J.H. Wyman and Lance Reddick (who plays Phillip Broyles).  Shortly before the presentation began, I got to speak with Wyman on the red carpet.  We talked about whether he’s finished editing the series finale, if the network give him any notes, how he chose to end the series, Dead Man Down, and his next TV project with Bad Robot.  Hit the jump to watch.
