Independent TV studio, Georgeville Television has teamed up with “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter to finance a new drama series. Entitled “The After,” the series will debut at next week’s MIPCOM TV market where it will be shopped by newly formed Sierra/Engine Television, reports Deadline.
Written by Carter, “The After” is 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.
“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,” said Georgeville CEO Marc Rosen, who co-founded the company earlier this year with Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, the financing arm of Reliance Entertainment.
In addition to “The After,” GVTV is also financing a remake of the cult UK sci-fi series “Blake’s 7” with feature director Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) for Syfy, “Hunters,” a pandemic thriller drama from Overbrook Entertainment and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski at ABC as well “Sense8,” a supernatural series from the Wachowskis (The Matrix) and Straczynski.
