The long-awaited return to TV of “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter is close to reality as Deadline is reporting that Carter is set to write, direct and executive produce a mystery drama with a female lead for MRC.
The company, which hopes to go straight-to-series on the project, is expected to start pitching the show to networks in the next few weeks. Carter had had the idea for the action series for awhile and earlier this year pitched it to MRC, which has been teaming with A-list film and TV auspices.
Since “The X-Files” ended its run on Fox in 2002, ICM-repped Carter has stayed largely out of the spotlight, only doing the 2008 X-Files movie sequel and the upcoming thriller Fencewalker. There is now talk about a potential third X-Files movie.
