David Duchovny's new Showtime series is a dark comedy about a writer self-destructing after Hollywood bungles the film of his novel.

Fresh Air's TV critic reviews the new Showtime dramedy Californication.

The show stars X-Files veteran David Duchovny as a charming, jaded rogue of a writer trapped in a Hollywood identity crisis.

The studios have turned his dark novel into a romantic comedy, but that's hardly the worst of it. He's still hung up on his ex — so much so that he's sleeping with every woman who'll let him.
