EXCLUSIVE: The X Files creator Chris Carter is close to a TV return with his first pilot in more than a decade. I’ve learned that Amazon Studios has moved forward with a pilot order to The After, Carter’s project with Georgeville TV. Carter wrote and is set to direct the thriller, which takes place at the moment of apocalypse. Georgeville TV, founded by Marc Rosen and Reliance’s Motion Picture Capital, first teamed with Carter for The After last fall when the project was taken to MIPCOM by Sierra/Engine TV.
We consider this a great opportunity for Carter; ventures such as Netflix and Amazon Studios, have been capturing attention with new trends and pushing the boundaries beyond what network TV and Cable can offer. Many examples come to mind but the most notorious ones are the critically acclaimed House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
We'll bring you more news as it develops, in the meantime, congratulations Mr. Carter!
