Amazon Orders a Pilot From 'The X-Files' Creator Chris Carter

It's been over a decade since "The X-Files" creator Chris Carter has had a series on the air, but he's had a few projects in the works recently, and one of them has now been ordered to pilot.

Carter could be making his return to the small screen, albeit at an unconventional outlet. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon Studios has greenlit a pilot for "The After," a drama Carter created at Georgeville Television.

Not many details have been released about "The After," aside from the fact that it is a post-apocalyptic drama (aren't they all?) set in a world that's experienced a mysterious event, bringing together sci-fi and suspense elements. Carter will write and direct the pilot.

Amazon is gearing itself up to be a rival for streaming sites Netflix and Hulu, prepping its first round of original series, having greenlit two comedies and a selection of children's shows. The company's now looking at drama projects, having ordered a pilot for police procedural "Bosch" in June.
