Craig Robinson and Adam Scott Get ‘Ghosted’ for FOX ‘X-Files’ Spoof
There’s no telling when and if FOX will ever get another X-Files season off the ground, but we might have the next best thing. Parks and Recreation star Adam Scott and Office alum Craig Robinson will join forces for an X-Files type parody, Ghosted, a new single-camera comedy.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, FOX has issued a pilot commitment to the X-Files styled comedy, which sees the two Mike Schur stars (who shared a Hot Tub Time Machine, but somehow never guested on their respective series) as Mulder and Scully types in Los Angeles. So reads the synopsis for the series, itself penned by That Awkward Moment scribe Tom Gormican:
Ghosted is described as a comedic take on The X-Files and centers on a cynical, hilarious skeptic, Leroy Wright (Robinson), and a genius “true believer” in the paranormal, and Max Allison (Adam Scott), who is hired by the Underground Investigative Service to look into the rampant “unexplained” activity in L.A. — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.
The two stars will also executive produce (along with Adam’s wife and producing partner Naomi Scott), but no official timetable has yet been given. Robinson has repeatedly appeared on FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, while Ghosted would mark Scott’s broadcast return.
