5* Drops David Duchovny’s Comedy Series ‘Californication’

Tags :

It looks like X-Files alum David Duchovny is without a UK home. 5* has decided not to pick up the fifth season of Showtime’s comedy series Californication, parent company Channel 5 has confirmed. The move, which comes after weeks of rumours that future seasons of Californication would not continue on 5*, leaves the series without a UK broadcaster.

Created by Tom Kapinos, Californication follows fast-living novelist Hank Moody who leaves the literary haunts of New York for the pleasure seeking splendors of LA. He thought he’d have fame, fortune and the love of a good woman, but now his personal life is in shambles, his career is on the brink of self-destruction and he still just can’t stop yielding to every temptation. The comedy series, which is currently in production on its sixth season, stars David Duchovny, Natascha McElhone, Madeleine Martin, Evan Handler and Pamela Adlon.

Californication has been re-added to TVWise’s Acquisitions Scorecard as unsold.
