Duchovny gets live action at Cartoon net

David Duchovny is making the leap from the adult themes of sex addiction in his new Showtime comedy series "Californication" to a kids-oriented half-hour for Cartoon Network set in junior high.

As part of its strategy to expand into live-action programming, Cartoon has given a pilot-presentation order to a live-action project from Duchovny, "Even Stevens" creator Matt Dearborn and Robert Mora.

The untitled project, written by Dearborn, centers on a junior high school student from a long line of newsmen who turns his school AV Club into a hard-hitting citywide broadcast. Duchovny, Dearborn and Mora are executive producing.

Cartoon entered the live-action arena less than a year ago with the December debut of live-action/animated movie "Re-Animated." A live-action series spinoff -- "Out of Jimmy's Head" -- premiered Friday night. Cartoon also recently aired a live-action reality special, "Props," that gave kids a chance to meet their celebrity heroes.

Duchovny also executive produces "Californication," which recently got picked up for a second season. He is repped by ICM, manager Melanie Greene and attorney Peter Nelson.

Dearborn created the live-action series "Even Stevens," starring Shia LaBeouf, which ran from 2000-03 on Disney Channel. He is repped by Gersh Agency.

Mora was a producer on Disney Channel's "Phil of the Future" and Nickelodeon's "The Secret Life of Alex Mack."
