Fox, the network of The X-Files, is taking in Ghosted. In a very competitive situation with a slew of buyers, Fox has landed a single-camera comedy from Tom Gormican (That Awkward Moment) that has The Office alum Craig Robinson and Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott set to star and executive produce.

Described as a sort of comedic X-Files, Ghosted centers on Leroy Wright (Robinson), a cynical, hilarious skeptic, and Max Allison (Scott), a genius “true believer” in the paranormal, who are hired by the Underground Investigative Service to look into the rampant “unexplained” activity in Los Angeles — all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race.

Gormican will write the script. He executive produces with Robinson, Scott and 3 Arts’ Mark Schulman and Oly Obst. 20th Century Fox TV is the studio, producing with 3 Arts Entertainment.

Ghosted reunites Robinson and Scott, who starred together in another sci-fi-themed comedy, the 2015 feature Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Gormican is repped by WME, 3 Arts and attorney Micahel Schenkman.
