Series: Californication

Californication is a Showtime dramedy created by Tom Kapinos and starring David Duchovny, Natascha McElhone and Evan Handler.

Duchovny plays Hank Moody, a ladies' man and occasional novelist who likes his booze and pot a bit too much. When he is first introduced in the first season, his life has slowly fallen apart since his longtime girlfriend Karen (McElhone) left him. He struggles to be a good parental figure to his and Karen's daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), and he fails to produce any kind of written work due to his drug use and sex addiction. He becomes more unstable especially after his book, "God Hates Us All", gets turned into a gooey, flowery movie called "A Crazy Little Thing Called Love". His producer and best friend, Charlie Runkle (Evan Handler) constantly goofs up mishap after mishap, as his marriage to his wife Marcy (Pamela Adlon) crumbles.

The show premiered in 2007. The final seventh season aired in 2014.

Not to be confused with the Red Hot Chili Peppers album of the same name, or with SoCalization, a trope that is often called "Californication" outside this wiki (especially in the western US)note .
