'X-Files' creator Chris Carter is working on a new series

X-Files lasted 9 seasons and had 3 movies. Now that's saying something.

MASH lasted for 10 seasons, and before it Gunsmoke had 10. Since then, I'm not sure except 24 went 8 seasons plus a movie, and Fringe is in season 5 now. The Dead Zone went 6, and Battlestar Galactica went 4 with a couple .5 seasons thrown in (2.5 & 4.5) and 2 movies. Walker Texas Ranger went 8 seasons with a movie. NCIS is in season 10 now, and Criminal Minds is in season 8. Not sure if any of these were mapped out, but they have held their own for a long time. At one time, wasn't Mark Harmon voted the most favorite actor on TV?

THREE movies???? There was the 1998 movie, "Fight The Future", and "I Want to Believe".... 10 years later in 2008. I am unaware of a 3rd X Files movie, however.

I must admit to being hooked on Criminal Minds as my "need Millennium" fix.... and even MORE hooked on Dr. Spencer Reid! win21.gif

Actually, "X-Files: Revelations" isn't a "movie" so to speak. It's an "Essential Guide to the X-Files Movie" released in 1993 and 1999. Sorry for the confusion, my bad.

Oh yes, the awesome "Criminal Minds," and Dr. Reid. He's kind of like a modern day Einstein, and he's someone I could sit and listen to for hours. I also miss Jason Gideon and absolutely love David Rossi. Derek Morgan, he's just a great big yummy yum yum I would never say "no" to.

I hadn't heard of "Criminal Minds" before, but S3Ep2 is half-way through on Sky at the moment.

Will check it out now!

30 minutes later. It is, of course, impossible to get an idea of what a show is like based on the last half of one episode. So I've set the Sky box to record the next two episodes, which are being shown tomorrow afternoon.

May I suggest that you try and start at the beginning with season 1, somehow, somewhere. You will appreciate the show so much more, plus, there have been character changes as well. Sure hope you can find the first season, otherwise it would be like walking in a theater to watch a movie and arriving after it's half way through. Especially considering this awesome show is in its 8th season now.

There was a

related to this that came out, in French! So I trascribed/translated it here:

Chris Carter's "THE AFTER"

What happens when the end is now?

13 x one-hour

In fact it's not apocalyptic, it's very apocalyptic. In fact it's the first five seconds when it begins, the five minutes, the five hours, the five days, the five weeks. Normally, films -- and even series, like "Revolution", but films normally -- they jump a period of ten years, twenty years, something that is ahead. Because you want special effects, production design, things like that. But with us, it's really reality, it's what happens if you and me we are here, something happens outside and we find ourselves in the middle of we don't know, if it's aliens, if it's biblical, if it's supernatural, à la Chris Carter in the X-Files.

Each week our group of characters will try to find exactly what's going on. But as it's Chris Carter we're going to do twists and turns I think with the mythology. In fact it's -- he's going to say the same thing -- it's the closest to the X-Files compared to anything else he's done today. It's because there's a secret with what's going on, supernaturally or otherwise, and characters who are trying to find that out. At the same time they have missions themselves: to find the family of one of them, to find medicine for another, and for that they hold on together throughout the whole series.

We are going to see the voyage between Los Angeles and New York in the first season, and afterwards we have twists and twists that Chris invented. I think that the audience who liked the X-Files will like this show here.

carter__120109014423-275x374.pngIndependent 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.

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. Sierra/Engine is handling the international distribution for GVTV’s projects, which also include Neil Cross’ midseason NBC pirate drama Crossbones. Carter has been looking at non-traditional TV development/production for his return to television after The X Files. Last year, he teamed with MRC for female-drive thriller Unique, which didn’t get set up at a network. Carter and Georgeville are with CAA.
