X-Files' Duchovny Suing Producer

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - ``The X-Files'' star David Duchovny is suing the show's producer, 20th Century Fox Film Corp., claiming Fox gave its own stations sweetheart deals on ``X-Files'' reruns.

The suit, filed Thursday in Superior Court, claims Fox breached Duchovny's contract and paid ``X-Files'' creator Chris Carter more than $34 million and promised him a new series to keep him quiet about the deal.

The suit did not specify damages.

Fox sold the series to its own broadcast network, Fox Broadcasting Co., and its own cable network, FX Cable Network. Syndication rights were sold to its own group of stations, Fox Television Stations. The lawsuit contends that Fox should have sold the series to the highest bidder.

Fox said in a news release that it would not comment. A message left at Carter's office Friday was not immediately returned.
