The next issue of Empire (hitting shops on Thursday) features an exclusive interview with X-Files creator Chris Carter. We excerpted some quotes from him about the possibility of a third Mulder and Scully film, but he’s also now landed a new TV gig, setting up a pilot with Amazon.

Following the recent splurge of comedy and cartoon pilots (including an unsuccessful stab at bringing Zombieland to the small screen), Amazon has now commissioned an episode of a new Carter show called The After.

With a script from the man himself, The After is a thriller that revolves around a mysterious, unexplained event. In the vein of The X-Files, it incorporates elements of science fiction, suspense, and real-world fear and paranoia. The potential series already has the backing of indie TV studio Georgeville Television, which, together with the presence of Carter, makes it an appetising proposition with Amazon, which is looking to compete with Netflix and Hulu in scripted series.

Of course, now we have to wait and see if the series gets picked up once the pilot is submitted…
