David Duchovny going to Cartoon Network
Unfortunately, it's not as a new super-villain on the next season of Venture Bros., although really, somebody should do about getting that put together, don't you think? Instead, Duchovny will be executive producer of a live-action kids show for the network.
Right now, it's just a pilot order, and there's no title yet, but the show will tell the story of a junior high kid from a long line of newsmen who uses the high school A/V club to launch a legitimate citywide news broadcast. Joining Duchovny on the team are Matt Dearborn (Even Stevens), who wrote the pilot, and Robert Mora (Phil of the Future, The Secret Life of Alex Mack).
It's an interesting premise, and he has a good team there, but it makes me wonder if Disney passed on this. It would seem to be right in their wheelhouse.
While still new for the Cartoon network, this isn't their first foray into live-action. In December they had the live-action/animated movie Re-Animated, and they also recently premiered the live-action series spinoff Out of Jimmy's Head.
