Fox is a veteran of the supernatural and paranormal, airing shows like The X-Files ever since 1993. Now, in a fit of nostalgia, the entertainment group has decided to revamp the theme of a paranormal seeking duo, only it replaced Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny with comedic legends, Craig Robinson and Adam Scott.
Judging from the trailer, the two are a perfect match. They may not have the chemistry of Agent Mulder and Scully, but again, Ghosted is not a drama, it’s a half an hour comedy show that must fit between The Simpsons and Family Guy, so there is no room for heartbreaking drama, just uninterrupted laughs.
Ghosted Follows the Story of Two Misfits
Craig Robinson plays Leroy Wright, a police officer and supernatural skeptic, or the Scully. On the other hand, there’s Max Jennifer (Adam Scott), the Mulder of the duo. From what the trailer lets us believe, Wright and Jennifer are abducted from their routine daily activities, Men in Black style, and introduced to the Bureau Underground, an organization that “investigates the paranormal and anything outside the scientific realm.”
Naturally, like any self-respecting comedy show, Ghosted seems riddled with stereotypical jests and situation comedy while the actors do everything in their power not to take themselves seriously. Currently, the success of the show is depending on Robinson and Scott’s chemistry and ability to make viewers laugh.
Fox Is Betting on Comedies This Fall
Seems Fox is going all in on comedies this fall, as the entertainment group is also going to air a Star Trek spoof, The Orville. Following the adventures of a second-grade starship captain played by non-other than Seth McFarlane (Family Guy) and an unconventional crew of humans and aliens, the show is already gathering a considerable fan base.
