“Californication” star David Duchovny already has a show lined up when his Showtime series ends this year. He has signed up to play an LA police sergeant in an NBC drama set in the 1960s.

Duchovny, who is currently working as the struggling novelist with never-ending sexual temptations on the seventh and final season of the Showtime series “Californication,” just landed his next TV project that will see him back to broadcast TV.

The show, entitled “Aquarius,” has received a 13-episode order from NBC. It focuses on David Duchovny’s character following the “charismatic young cult leader” Charles Manson.

Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment, said in a statement about the casting news: “After being involved in the production of both The X-Files and Californication, it gives me great pleasure to work with David Duchovny for the third time on this compelling drama. I’m especially pleased that he wanted to come to NBC where I know there is a big audience waiting to see him.”

David Duchovny also spoke about his next gig, saying in a statement: “I’m thrilled to be working with Bob Greenblatt again 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.”
