As part of its strategy to expand into live-action programming, Cartoon has given a pilot-presentation order to a live-action project from Duchovny, Even Stevens creator Matt Dearborn and Robert Mora.
The untitled project, written by Dearborn, centers on a junior high school student from a long line of newsmen who turns his school AV Club into a hard-hitting citywide broadcast. Duchovny, Dearborn and Mora are executive producing.
Cartoon entered the live-action arena less than a year ago with the December debut of live-action/animated movie Re-Animated. A live-action series spinoff -- Out of Jimmy's Head -- premiered Friday night. Cartoon also recently aired a live-action reality special, Props, that gave kids a chance to meet their celebrity heroes.
Duchovny also executive produces Californication, which recently got picked up for a second season. He is repped by ICM, manager Melanie Greene and attorney Peter Nelson.
