Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Exorcist TV series in development as 10-episode miniseries.

If successful, it would be easy to envision this being an annual series of 10-episode "miniseries," either with the same priest(s) as main characters or changing the characters and setting entirely. I'm sure Satan can be counted on to provide plenty of fun & games!

PS, check out the link to YouTube in the story. I won't post it here so as not to freak anyone out by accident...

Sean Durkin, the writer-director of last year’s excellent but criminally underseen Elizabeth Olsen thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene, is adapting the fiendish classic into a ten-episode television series, this time backed by Morgan Creek and produced by Roy Lee, the executive producer of films like The Departed and The Ring.

Unlike the iconic 1973 film, Durkin’s version of The Exorcist follows the events leading up to a demonic possession and especially the after-effects of how a family copes with it

...

The Exorcist TV series won't be formally shopped to networks for another two weeks, but executives are already calling seeking meetings to inquire about landing the Durkin update.
