“The X-Files” season 10 ended with a jarring cliffhanger. Fans are yet to understand what became of show protagonists Scully and Mulder. While it was previously reported that season 11 could be in the cards, even the bosses at Fox couldn’t give something solid to hang on to. That being said, there might still be some good news.

Apparently, someone tickled Fox Network’s funny bone this time, because last heard, a comedy version of the classic sci-fi show is being produced by the studio. According to multiple sources, the new comical show has been titled “Ghosted.” Actors Craig Robinson (“The Office”) and Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation”) have been set to star in the series.

That being said, a pilot for the show has recently been ordered by the network, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Tom Gormican of “That Awkward Moment” will be writing the script, while simultaneously executive produce the show with Robinson, Scott and the latter’s wife, Naomi Scott. The report further states that Kevin Etten (“Desperate Housewives”) will act as the fourth executive producer and showrunner.

So, what is “Ghosted” all about? According to Deadline, the show has been described as a sort of “comedic X-Files,” with the plot centring on a “cynical, hilarious skeptic” Leroy Wright (Craig Robinson) and a genius “true believer” in the paranormal Max Allison (Adam Scott), who have been “hired by the Underground Investigative Service” to inspect the rampant “unexplained” activity reported in Los Angeles. The plot further states that the duo will uncover a “larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.”

Actor Craig Robinson recently starred in “Mr Robinson,” a NBC comedy. He was also seen in a recurring role in USA Network's “Mr Robot.” It has been alleged that Robinson will host Spike TV's upcoming show “Caraoke Showdown.”

“Ghosted” season 1 is the third in line of Fox’s pilot orders this season after Liz Meriwether's female-driven Antarctica project “Thin Ice” and the high-concept comedy “Linda From HR.” All three comedy pilots are produced in-house at 20th Century Fox TV.

“Ghosted” stars Robinson and Scott were last seen together in another sci-fi-themed comedy, “Hot Tub Time Machine 2” (2015). The series also marks Scott’s return to broadcast comedy following his performance in NBC's “Parks and Recreation.” He is also set to star in HBO’s upcoming David E Kelley miniseries “Big Little Lies,” where he plays Reese Witherspoon’s on-screen husband.
