Brand new X-Files unveiled at MIPCOM 2015 – Creator in Cannes for world premiere TV screening

10 Sep 2015

Thirteen years after the last episode, the supernatural phenomenon The X-Files is back as an exclusive MIPCOM Tuesday World Premiere TV Screening.

The six-episode event series reunites Creator/Executive Producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, who re-inhabit their roles as iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Delegates at MIPCOM will watch the first episode of the reboot on 6 October at 18:30 in the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals, Cannes. Carter is due to attend the event, and will participate in a question and answer session after the screening.

The pop culture phenomenon – with its tagline "The truth is out there" – remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in television history, making its return a momentous occasion for fans around the world. It premiered in September 1993 and over the course of its nine-season run, went from a cult sci-fi favourite to a massive global hit, becoming one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show won 16 Emmys®, five Golden Globes® and a Peabody Award.

The X-Files' new incarnation is brought to MIPCOM by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution. Fox Television Group heads Dana Walden and Gary Newman are MIPCOM 2015 Personalities Of The Year.

"The return of this iconic series underlines the current demand for story-telling at its best. We are delighted that Fox has chosen MIPCOM for the world premiere of the return of The X-Files, which is one of several high-profile series being showcased exclusively at MIPCOM 2015," said Laurine Garaude, Director of TV Division at Reed MIDEM, which organises MIPCOM.
