Amazon Studios today released a description for The X-Files creator Chris Carter's newest series, the forthcoming apocalyptic drama The After.
The pilot, now fully cast, has finally been officially greenlit and will come to Amazon Prime customers in early 2014 and compete for a full season along with at least one other drama and a number of comedies.
Taking place at the moment of the Apocalypse, The After stars Heroes's Adrian Pasdar and Leverage's Aldis Hodge, among others; check out the full description below.
Written and directed by Emmy-nominee Chris Carter (The X-Files), executive produced by Marc Rosen of Georgeville Television and produced by Gabe Rotter, The After follows eight strangers who are thrown together by mysterious forces and must help each other survive in a violent world that defies explanation. Sharon Lawrence, Jamie Kennedy, Aldis Hodge, Andrew Howard, Arielle Kebbel, Jaina Lee Ortiz, Adrian Pasdar and Louise Monot will star.
“I’m very superstitious about talking about what I’m working on before it’s finished, and it’s more fun if it’s kept a mystery! So let me just say that this is a show that explores human frailty, possibility, terror, and the triumph of the human spirit,” said Carter. “I’m so excited to be telling this story with Amazon in this new frontier of television.”
