Californication is a comedy/drama TV series created in 2007 by Tom Kapinos (screenwriter for Dawson’s Creek), starring David Duchovny. The show follows the erratic life of Henry James “Hank” Moody, a New Yorker novelist who moves to California, and suffers from writer’s block (the fear of the blank page). Sex, booze and drugs abuse complicate his relationships with his longtime lover Karen (Natascha McElhone) and daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin). The show’s other main characters are Moody’s best friend and agent, Charlie Runkle (Evan Handler), and Charlie’s wife, Marcy (Pamela Adlon). Duchovny being tired of Hank Moody, the 7th and final season will air in April 2014.
In 2007, the Red Hot Chili Peppers rock band sued – unsuccessfully – Showtime Networks over the name of the series, which is also the name of the band’s 1999 album and hit single.
