NBC Orders 13 Episodes of David Duchovny-Led Drama, AQUARIUS

March 31, 2014 by  

NBC has ordered 13 episodes of AQUARIUS, a straight-to-series drama starring soon-to-be-former CALIFORNICATION star David Duchovny.

Per NBC, AQUARIUS is a “gripping drama series set in the late 1960s, Duchovny stars as a Los Angeles police sergeant 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 Duchovny’s character and his young partner to the brink of Manson’s crimes that will eventually lead to the Tate-LaBianca murders in subsequent seasons.”

“Event series are a big priority for us, and the combination of a show that charts the lead-up to the Manson murders, along with a television star of the magnitude of David Duchovny, is the very definition of an event,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be working with these talented producers, including Marty Adelstein and creator John McNamara, to present something truly original.”

“After being involved in the production of both ‘The X-Files’ and ‘Californication,’ it gives me great pleasure to work with David Duchovny for the third time on this compelling drama,” added Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “I’m especially pleased that he wanted to come to NBC where I know there is a big audience waiting to see him.”

“I’m thrilled to be working with Bob Greenblatt again and coming back to broadcast television,” Duchovny added. “I think ‘Aquarius’ has a chance to be a special show and I can’t wait to get going.”
