The X-Files creator Chris Carter was hospitalized on Tuesday for exhaustion.

Carter, who has been working non-stop on multiple movie projects for two years is being treated for exhaustion and "an acute sleeping disorder," says EW .

Carter, who wrote, produced and directed this summer's The X-Files: I Want to Believe, jumped immediately into directing the hush-hush feature Fencewalker. That, coupled with an exhausting world press tour for The X-Files, could lead to one sleep-deprived multi-hyphenate.

Carter is expected to make a speedy recovery. Erin Fox
