Those in need of a new horror show to sink their teeth into are in luck: US network Showtime are currently developing an hour-long series based on Scott Thomas’ award-winning horror novel Kill Creek.
The show, which will also be called Kill Creek, already has Misha Green (co-creator of Underground) and Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange and Sinister director) on board as executive producers, alongside Elisa Ellis for Platform One Media, and Adam Gomolin and Andrew Lazar.
Derrickson is set to direct from a script by Green. Co-producing are Showtime and Platform One Media.
For more info about the novel itself, you can read the official Amazon synopsis here:
At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, is the Finch House. For years it has remained empty, overgrown, abandoned. Soon the door will be opened for the first time in decades. But something is waiting, lurking in the shadows, anxious to meet its new guests…
When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country’s most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won’t be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.
