The darling of convention crowd for years, the actor formerly known as Agent Mulder is coming back to series TV.
David Duchovny stars in a yet-untitled project set to air on Showtime. Called a “stylish new comedy” in the network’s press release, Showtime has ordered 12 episodes scheduled to premiere in August.
David not only stars, but also produces the series wich will co-star Natascha McElhone (“The Truman Show”), Madeleine Martin (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Hope & Faith”), Madeline Zima (“The Nanny,” A Cinderella Story), and Evan Handler (“Sex and the City”).
The 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.
