X-File’s creator Chris Carter is bringing back his signature sci-fi stories with a new series, ‘The After’. Deadline has shared that Carter and Georgeville Television will work to bring the new thriller to the small screen. Plot details are slim but in Carter style the new show will be a mixed bag of sci-fi thrills with “real world fear and paranoia.” Not much else has been revealed with Georgeville’s CEO Marc Rosen rousing curiosity in ‘X-File’ fans. “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.”
There’s also news coming down the pike for David Fincher’s ‘House of Cards’. ‘The Social Network’ director’s new series is scheduled to air season one on Netflix in the New Year on February 1st 2013. Actor Kevin Spacey will headline the drama as a cutthroat, career driven House of Representative’s majority whip. Robin Wright will play his wife. Michael Kelly, Kristen Connolly, Corey Stoll, Kate Mara and Sakina Jaffrey will also star. Fincher directed the first two episodes of ‘House of Cards’, Boardwalk Empire’s Alan Coulter, Charles McDougall (The Office), Joel Schumacher and James Foley helmed the rest of the 13 episode order, among others.
