Eli Roth and Jason Blum’s new TV show South Of Hell, starring Mena Suvari, is currently in production in South Carolina and has put together a very interesting line-up of directors.

While Roth himself will be directing the pilot, Bloody Disgusting reports that Ti West (The House Of The Devil, The Innkeepers), Jennifer Lynch (Chained, Surveillance), Rachel Talalay (Tank Girl, last week’s Doctor Who finale), and Jeremiah Chechik (Chuck, Helix) will be working on further episodes.

“Charleston, South Carolina is the most possessed city in the world. Evil thrives there. Something with which 30-year-old exorcist Maria Abascal is intimately acquainted. She wrestles demons for a living. Especially Abigail, the one that lives within her. The one who feeds on damned souls and who’s violated the laws of hell to live on earth—and live on, inside Maria. Now, as they work as one, Maria will discover how personal her battle with evil has become and how far Abigail will go to protect them both. It’s a journey where the unspeakable is just a heartbeat away.”

South Of Hell begins on the WE network in the US in 2015. You can keep up with the latest horror news with the latest issue of SciFiNow.
