X-Files fans, rejoice! Frank Spotnitz has a new project.

EW has confirmed that Spotnitz and Nicholas Meyer have teamed up to create Freud: The Secret Casebook, a period drama about Sigmund Freud. The show will follow Freud in the early 20th century as he becomes the first-ever criminal profiler, using psychology to solve crimes. According to Deadline, which first reported the news, the show will balance murder mysteries with Freud’s personal life.

Carnival Films and Big Light are set to produce.
