Golden Globe winner David Duchovny will be handling the starring role in the NBC dramatic series Aquarius set in the 1960s and written by John McNamara. Duchovny’s also on board as an executive producer with Marty Adelstein and Melanie Greene. NBC’s given a 13 episode order for the show which will star Duchovny as a police sergeant tracking a young Charles Manson.
“Event series are a big priority for us, and the combination of a show that charts the lead-up to the Manson murders, along with a television star of the magnitude of David Duchovny, is the very definition of an event,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to be working with these talented producers, including Marty Adelstein and creator John McNamara, to present something truly original.”
“After being involved in the production of both The X-Files and Californication, it gives me great pleasure to work with David Duchovny for the third time on this compelling drama,” added Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “I’m especially pleased that he wanted to come to NBC where I know there is a big audience waiting to see him.”
“I’m thrilled to be working with Bob Greenblatt again and coming back to broadcast television,” said Duchovny. “I think Aquarius has a chance to be a special show and I can’t wait to get going.”
The Plot:

In this gripping drama series set in the late 1960s, Duchovny stars as a Los Angeles police sergeant with a complicated personal life who starts tracking a small-time criminal and budding cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his “cause.” The name of that man is Charles Manson. The twists and turns of a complicated undercover operation will lead Duchovny’s character and his young partner to the brink of Manson’s crimes that will eventually lead to the Tate-LaBianca murders in subsequent seasons.
