Archive: Interview: Chris Carter Talks ‘The After’, Working With Amazon, Third ‘X-Files’ Film, ‘Unique’ & More – TVWise

Chris Carter is back in the TV game.
The veteran writer/producer/director, best known for creating Fox’s long-running 1990s series The X-Files, has had a long career in the industry having created such cult series such as Millennium, Harsh Realm and the often forgotten X-Files spin-off The Lone Gunmen.
Since X-Files went off-air in the early 2000s Carter has largely been absent from the industry, only briefly interrupting his hiatus to produce a second X-Files feature film and to work on the long-gestating feature project Fencewalker.
Carter signalled his intention to get back in the game in 2012, when he was developing a new television series titled Unique with Media Rights Capital – the independent studio behind Netflix’s House of Cards. That project was pitched to the networks but ultimately didn’t sell, however, that didn’t keep Carter down. Soon after he partnered with new upstart Georgeville Television for a new TV project titled The After, which has since landed at Amazon, who released the pilot earlier this month.
Chris Carter was kind enough to spare some time from his hectic schedule to speak to TVWise about The After, what it’s like working with Amazon, the long-rumoured third X-Files feature film, what happened with Unique and more.
