NBC has put in development horror drama Cul-De-Sac from Scream: The TV Serieswriter Brian Sieve, director Larysa Kondracki (The Fix), Blumhouse Television and Universal Television.
Blumhouse Television, the small screen arm of Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions, is behind the series, along with Universal Television. The pilot is being written by Brian Sieve (Scream: The TV Series) and directed by Larysa Kondracki (Legion, Gotham). The story follows three families who live in a suburban cul-de-sac where something evil is beginning to plague them.
Blumhouse is known for its high-earning, low-budget horror movies like Get Out, Split, Insidious, Paranormal Activity and Sinister, but the company has also been involved in TV for six years. Its most high-profile effort, a series based on the movie The Purge and its sequels, is scheduled to debut later this year.
Written and co-executive produced by Sieve, Cul-De-Sac is a serialized drama about three families living in a suburban cul-de-sac who begin to experience terrifying events and come to realize there’s something sinister invading their perfect middle-class dream.
Kondracki executive produces and will direct the potential pilot. Chris Mills and Zack Tann executive produce for Magnet Management.
