After 9/11, IFT approached the U.S. government and proposed building the Machine. Ingram downsized IFT substantially, collected awards and dealt with the government's liaison Alicia Corwin, while Finch developed the Machine. (“Ghosts”)(“Super”)


After its completion, Ingram arranged to have the Machine shipped from IFT.

Production Notes

  • What IFT may stand for:

MALE (40-55; any ethnicity) - INGRAM. A telegenic tech mogul in the mold of Steve Jobs, he's a friend and partner of Finch's. The face of Ingram Technologies, their collaboration has made Ingram one of the richest men in the world.” (Casting call[1] for Ingram's role)
