X Files meets The West Wing
Wow. Who wants to see Jon Favreau (director of Iron Man) make a TV show created by the writers of Transformers and Cowboys & Aliens? Oh, also Seth "The diet coke of evil" Green.
Ex-Comm has been picked up by ABC and will be made into a pilot by the above mentioned stellar creatives. The show is described as a cross between The X-Files thanks to its sci-fi / paranormal feel and The West Wing given it's all about an executive committee with the newly elected President at the top of the tree. It exists to protect the nation from strange occurrences and conspiracy theory truths.
The truth is out there, of course, and this humorous sci-fi show (on paper at least) is likely to see the light of day come the Summer when pilot season gets into full swing.
