NBC has released the poster for their upcoming David Duchovny fronted drama Aquarius.
Aquarius is set in the late 1960s and follows LAPD Sergeant Sam Hodiak (Duchovny), a man with a complicated personal life who starts tracking a small-time criminal and budding cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his “cause.” The name of that man is Charles Manson. The twists and turns of a complicated undercover operation will lead Hodiak and his young partner to the brink of Manson’s crimes that will eventually lead to the Tate-LaBianca murders.
Set to debut with a two-hour premiere on Thursday May 28th at 9/8c, the 13 episode drama was created by John McNamara and stars David Duchovny, Grey Damon, Gethin Anthony, Emma Dumont, Claire Holt, Michaela McManus and Brian F. O’Byrne. The series is being produced by ITV Studios America in association with Marty Adelstein Productions, with John McNamara, Marty Adelstein, Melanie Greene and David Duchovny serving as executive producers.
The launch of Aquarius on NBC comes more than a year after it first got a green-light at the network and, as TVWise exclusively reported back on March 20th, shortly before production is set to get underway on a limited series revival of The X-Files, for which both David Duvhovny and his original co-star Gillian Anderson are returning. Mitch Pilleggi, Robert Patrick, Annabeth Gish and William B, Davis are also presently in talks to reprise their roles from the original series in the six episode revival.
