Fox orders paranormal series in the vein of The X-Files from 24 producers

Fox misses Mulder and Scully just as much as you do, apparently, since they're getting back into the "X-Files" mold with a new paranormal drama which will be created by former "24" producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto. Here's how the new show breaks down:
The untitled project centers on an Iraq war vet who experiences a supernatural attack that leaves his wife in an unexplained coma. He embarks on a desperate quest to unravel the truth behind hauntings. Though a determined and acerbic loner, circumstances force him to work with a media-hungry, but not very successful, team of ghost hunters. The team is led by a former university professor fired because of her research into mysterious phenomena, who is now determined to restore her reputation and academic career. Together, they chronicle dangerous, violent and truly terrifying occurrences.
Of course, Fox has a long history of trotting out genre fare, only to squash it when it's not immediately successful. We'll see if this one will make the cut. via Arrow in the Head.
