PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Chris Carter, the creator of “The X-Files,” says his show’s been abducted.
Fox TV plans to move the popular paranormal hit from Friday night to Sunday night this fall to make room for a new show.
“I like to think of ‘The X-Files’ as being abducted,” the writer-producer told a Television Critics Association gathering Wednesday.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson star as FBI investigators Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, who handle the bureau’s unsolved and officially shelved “X-files” — cases that lead beyond the comfortably explainable.
The show is being moved to make way for Carter’s latest creation, “Millennium,” which will debut in “The X-Files” old spot.
The new series stars Lance Henriksen as Frank Black, an ex-FBI agent who specialized in tracking serial killers and who now works with an underground group fighting evil.
