Hollywood A.D.


Episode Info

Having proven that they were not above self-parody with the earlier episode "X-Cops," the folks responsible for The X-Files served up another dose of satire with the April 30, 2000, episode "Hollywood A.D." Agent Mulder is hired as a technical adviser when one of his previous X-Files cases is transformed into a Hollywood movie. Presented in flashback, the actual events of the case are amusingly contrasted with the movie version, in which Garry Shandling plays Mulder and Téa Leoni (real-life wife of series star David Duchovny) portrays Scully. As production of the film continues, the real Mulder and Scully try to solve a few mysteries left dangling during their original investigation of the case. In addition to his usual duties as Mulder, Duchovny also wrote and directed "Hollywood A.D."
