Russian TV station TV-3 says its in negotiations with Fox about the airing of The X-Files limited series simultaneously with its U.S. premiere scheduled for next year.
“We would like to air the series simultaneously with its U.S. premiere and to bring the main actors (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) to Moscow for the premiere,” Daria Legoni-Fialko, TV-3’s general director, said in a press release.
“We are currently in negotiations with the studio,” she went on to say. “I cannot reveal any details at this point, but there are chances that the huge army of Russian [The X-Files] fans will be able to welcome their favorite actors in Moscow.”
Last summer, TV-3 aired all the nine seasons of the original The X-Files series, providing new overdubbing for it.
Focused primarily on mystery and sci-fi television series and movies, TV-3 is Russia’s eighth largest free-to-air network.
Last year, it sold rights to its show Udivi Menya (Surprise Me) to Ricky Kirschner Production in a rare Russian format sale deal to the US.
The X-Files is set to return next year for a limited run on its original network, Fox, which aired it in 1993 to 2002.
