What has “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter been up to ever since the conspiracy show to end all conspiracy show went off the air? (I believe at one point in the show’s later seasons, my Aunt somehow ended up being part of the show’s conspiracy.) Well, he found time to do an “X-Files” movie in 2008, but since then, we haven’t really heard much from him. Until now, that is.
Carter has signed up for a new drama/sci-fi series called “The After” for Georgeville Television. “The After” is being described as “a thriller which revolves around a mysterious, unexplained event. In the vein of The X Files, The After incorporates elements of science fiction, suspense, and real-world fear and paranoia.” Georgeville will be selling the show at MIPCOM next week.
Says Georgeville CEO Marc Rosen:
Chris has woven his mythology magic within a very human, grounded story about the moment when we realize all of our worst fears about the world and its future.
So does this mean Carter has given up on a third “X-Files” movie? Not necessarily, but it sure looks like he’s moved on…
Georgeville Television, meanwhile, has some really interesting shows on their slate. Besides Carter’s “The After”, the independent TV studio is also working on a remake of the British cult sci-fi show “Blake’s 7” with “Green Lantern” director Martin Campbell. They also have two shows with former “Babylon 5” creator J. Michael Straczynski — “Hunters”, a pandemic thriller, and “Sense8”, a supernatural show from Stracynski and the Wachowskis.
