The X-Files inspires new Fox comedy

September 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments



Hot Tub Time Machine duo Craig Robinson (above) and Adam Scott are to star in and produce a comedic version of the X-Files.

According to Deadline, Robinson will play a notorious skeptic who teams up with a true believer (Scott) to help an agency called the Underground Investigative Service “look into the rampant ‘unexplained’ activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race”.

The show will air on Fox with the pilot written by Tom Gormican.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
