Former Fox sci-fi drama mainstay “The X-Files” could be spinning-off an animated comedy series called “The X-Files: Albuquerque.” The proposed series, which will revolve around an office full of misfit agents who investigate X-Files cases too wacky, ridiculous or downright dopey for Mulder and Scully to bother with, has received a script and presentation commitment at the broadcaster.
“The X-Files” creator Chris Carter is attached to executive produce the project, with Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko attached to write and executive produce. Gabe Rotter, who worked on the “X-Files” revival at Fox, will also executive produce. 20th Television and Fox Entertainment will produce. Bento Box will provide animation. Neither Gillian Anderson or David Duchovny is involved with the project at this time.
If “The X-Files: Albuquerque” moves forward it will be the second spin-off from the long-running series following “The Lone Gunmen” in 2001.
