It’s been eleven years since “The X-Files” ended its run, and creator Chris Carter is finally returning to television with his pilot “The After,” starring “Leverage” actor Aldis Hodge, Adrian Pasdar and Jamie Kennedy.
Per Deadline, the thriller from Amazon Studios, written and to be directed by Carter, takes place at the moment of apocalypse, which is quite familiar territory for someone that wrote about an alien invasion for nine years. Hodge will play an escaped convict who claims he was tricked into committing a crime, while Pasdar and Kennedy play a successful Beverly Hills businessman and professional clown, respectively.
Hodge is best known for starring as Alec Hardison on the USA Network hit series “Leverage” and in a recurring role on “Friday Night Lights.” He also recently appeared opposite Brit Marling and Alexander Skarsgård in “The East.”
