David Duchovny Makes Return to TV on SHOWTIME In Sophisticated New Comedy Series (As Yet Untitled)

LOS ANGELES, March 15 -- Following in the footsteps of the successful and highly-acclaimed series Dexter, Weeds and Brotherhood, SHOWTIME has ordered 12 half-hour episodes of a stylish new comedy series, (as yet untitled) scheduled to premiere in August, it was announced today by Robert Greenblatt, Showtime President of Entertainment. Set to begin production in Los Angeles in June the new series stars and is executive produced by Golden Globe(R)-winning actor David Duchovny ("The X-Files"). Co-starring alongside Duchovny are Natascha McElhone (The Truman Show, Laurel Canyon), Madeleine Martin ("Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Hope & Faith"), Madeline Zima ("The Nanny," A Cinderella Story), and Evan Handler ("Sex and the City").

"This series furthers the SHOWTIME brand of high-quality, sophisticated, premium television and will be perfectly at home in the comedy space we've carved out with 'Weeds,'" said Greenblatt. "And I'm personally thrilled to be back in business with David Duchovny, with whom I worked on 'The X Files.' But anyone expecting Agent Mulder to resurface will be pleasantly surprised to see David create a character who is deeply flawed yet funny, complicated, and utterly human."

"I am thrilled to be working with Tom Kapinos and Showtime," Duchovny said. "The last few years, Showtime has been making some of the most interesting and enjoyable television there is, and I can't wait to continue that tradition."

Sophisticated and unique, this comedy centers on novelist Hank Moody (Duchovny) who struggles to raise his 13-year-old daughter (Madeleine Martin), while still carrying a torch for his ex-girlfriend Karen (McElhone). His obsession with truth-telling and self-destructive behavior -- drinks, drugs and relationships -- are both destroying and enriching his career.

Duchovny is best known to millions of fans for his work as Agent Fox Mulder on the long-running cult classic television series, "The X Files," a role for which he earned a Golden Globe(R) Award and was nominated for an Emmy(R). He also received Emmy(R) nominations for guest appearances on "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Sex and the City." He is a three-time Golden Globe(R) and SAG Award nominee. On the big screen, Duchovny's film credits include last year's Trust the Man and Evolution, both opposite Julianne Moore; and Return to Me, co-starring Minnie Driver. Upcoming film projects include Jake Kasdan's The TV Set, and Things We Lost in the Fire opposite Halle Berry and Benicio del Toro.

The series was created and executive produced by Tom Kapinos ("Dawson's Creek"). Duchovny and Stephen Hopkins ("24"), who directed the pilot, will also serve as executive producers, with Melanie Greene serving as co-executive producer.
