Jon Favreau, Seth Green, Michael Dougherty, Orci & Kurtzman Working on Sci-Fi Television Series

By Steven Lloyd Wilson | Trade News | October 6, 2011 | Comments ()

So, the series is called "Ex-Comm" and is being pitched as "X-Files" meets "The West Wing" and is described as a "presidential procedural." The show picks up with a newly elected president being introduced to his "executive committee" in charge of dealing with all the aliens, paranormal activity, and other sundry X-Files fringe events. It's also being emphasized as "fun but grounded," which is exciting given the people involved, but also reminds one of many many wince-worthy SyFy series.

ABC has already ordered a pilot of the series, although it hasn't really entered properly into production yet. No word yet on stars, but Favreau is on board for directing the pilot. And I haven't seen anyone point out yet the similarity of "Ex-Comm" to "X-Com," one of the greatest video games of the nineties. So they might want to tweak that title to avoid the inevitable law suit.
