Chris Carter Returns to TV with a 'Unique' Thriller


With the number of supernatural shows currently on the air, it was only a matter of time before one of the founding fathers of modern spooky TV got back in the game. X-Files creator Chris Carter is returning to television with the supernatural police thriller Unique. More after the jump.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "after several years away from Hollywood despite heavy demand, Carter has reemerged with a female-lead mystery police thriller titled Unique. The project, which is set up at Media Rights Capital, has a supernatural element to it. He is set to write and executive produce."

"Carter spent nearly a decade at the helm of the David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson vehicle, which ran from 1993 to 2002. The series not only helped put host network Fox on the map but also define it as a destination for edgy, quality fare."

"In addition to a rich ancillary revenue that came from DVD and merchandise, the franchise spawned two feature films, 1998's The X Files and 2008' The X Files: I Want to Believe. Last month, Anderson told an Australian morning show that there's talk of a third X-Files feature. 'I hope it happens,' she said. 'There's talk of it.'"
