Frank Spotnitz, a writer and executive producer on the cult favorite "The X-Files," is working on a new show for Cinemax that will feature a tough female character, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

The show will track a female security operative who goes undercover with a military contractor, and is described as having some of the same personality traits as the heroine Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," the story says. Cinemax currently is airing "Strike Back" from Spotnitz, who is a co-executive producer and writer on that action series, the piece adds.

Cinemax, which confirmed the new deal with Spotnitz, is aiming to build its original prime-time programming and has also made deals with Alan Ball and Luc Besson to develop shows, the story points out.
