X-FILES Mastermind Chris Carter’s Apocalypse Drama THE AFTER Gets Pilot Order From Amazon!!
According to Deadline’s exclusive, Chris Carter’s proposed “The After” series “takes place at the moment of apocalypse.”
Amazon has ordered a pilot, which Carter is expected to direct from his own script.
HBO has ordered a similar-sounding pilot titled “The Leftovers” from writers Damon Lindelof (“Lost,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “World War Z”) and Tom Perrota (“Election,” “Little Children”).
Since the 2002 cancellation of “X-Files” not much has been seen of Carter’s work aside from the 2008 “The X-Files: I Want To Believe” movie sequel he wrote and directed -- which garnered positive reviews from Roger Ebert and Richard Roeper but only 31% positive reviews from the 36 “top critics” polled by Rotten Tomatoes site.
Carter also co-created the TV series “Millennium,” “Harsh Realm” and “The Lone Gunmen.”
