You've found the home of ev-ev-everything Max Headroom.
Even after 30 years... he's still “20 Minutes into the Future!”
4/4/2015: Happy 30th Birthday, Max!

This site aims, as it always has, to be the last and most complete word on everything related to Max Headroom: '80s icon, TV show star and host, satirist and cultural meme. If it's Max... you'll find it here.

What you're seeing at the moment is the early stages of a completely new and long-overdue update to the site on the MediaWiki platform. The overall organization is complete, but there is much still to come in content and style. Everything is linked and detailed cross-linking will be an ongoing effort. Feel free to jump in anywhere and follow the connections where they take you. The first generation of the top-level indexes and entry points are below.

Cast, Crew or Creative?
Were you a part of the Max phenomenon?

A cast member, even a minor one?

Crew on any of the show?

Creative who developed anything from dialogue to the entire Coke campaign?

I've connected with many of you; if you're not among those, I'd truly love to hear from you. Even a few comments and questions can add important material to the Project archives. I'm happy to give you your additional (or perhaps first!) due recognition, or put the material under "off the record," or any combination.

Drop me a note, right now... and thanks!

This site has been rebuilt from the prior long-time version, and is being expanded for the 30th Anniversary Year. Please excuse any rough edges you may encounter as the work continues.

The original site remains unfinished,
but it's worth a quick look.

All external links on this site open in a new window.

With nearly all material transferred from the old site, I have begun begin the ongoing process of filling out these pages with additional content from the Project. A considerable amount of new material is already here, if only in brief or page-stub form. The goal remains the same it has been for more than ten years: to gather together in one place every relevant detail about Max, his world and his many appearances. More than that, the purpose here is to validate all that data and strip out the endless errors, mistakes, omissions and guesses, so that what's here is complete, reliable and I would hope moderately interesting to all Max fans and scholars. This new platform will make all these tasks much, much easier.

Until then, you will probably run into unfinished and stub pages. I will also be evolving the style to a more Max-like one, and you might encounter some quirks as a result of that. As Max would say, "Sorry. S-Sorry." If you're interested in the details of what's going on here behind the scenes, you can keep an eye on the updates page. Since everything is an update right now, it holds a summary of the overall work process and immediate plans.

— I'm your host and the site proprietor, Blank James. Enjoy your visit!
