Craig Robinson & Adam Scott To Star In 'Comedic X-Files' TV Show
Actors Craig Robinson and Adam Scott will be starring in a future comedy series on FOX, that's inspired by one of its most memorable shows.
According to Deadline the TV series will be called Ghosted, and will take a refreshingly comedic spin on The X-Files. Robinson will portray Leroy Wright, a Scully-esque role as a cynical skeptic, while Scott will play Max Allison, the Mulder of the show who's a genius "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon.
Ghosted will follow the mismatched duo who are "hired by the Underground Investigative Service to look into the rampant 'unexplained' activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race."
Both Robinson and Scott will serve as executive producers for the forthcoming series, and Tom Gormican will also executive produce as well as write the script.
This will be the first time Robinson and Scott have worked together since 2015's Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Ghosted sounds like an ideal project for the two, combining both supernatural and comedy in a way that'll hopefully be executed well by Gormican. Considering that FOX won the pilot for the show "In a very competitive situation with a slew of buyers," it must have some promise.
Ghosted doesn't have a release date yet, but make sure to check back with us when more news surrounding the forthcoming TV series drops.
