Californication and X Files star David Duchovny (sorry, you’ll always be Mulder to us Dave) is set to play a detective investigating the infamous case

According to EW reports, the popular TV star David Duchovny is making a risky choice and starring in a new NBC drama about the Charles Manson murders case. The former X Files actor will play a detective investigating the horrific murders which occurred in the late 1960s.

Entitled Aquarius, it will be a 13-episode series billed by the network as “an event series”. Duchovny revealed "I'm thrilled to be working with [NBC Entertainment chairman] Bob Greenblattagain and coming back to broadcast television. I think Aquarius has a chance to be a special show, and I can't wait to get going."

NBC released a statement saying "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."

As well as playing a central role, Duchovny will also executive produce the series alongside Melanie Greene, Marty Adelstein and the show's creator John McNamara.
