Other branches of the speculative fiction world are getting the royal treatment, too: Jamie Foxx will exec produce, write and direct a Tales From the Crypt-style half-hour horror anthology (no title yet) set to premiere in October. And (again, both in development) Scott Stewart will produce and direct a spin-off of the Paul Bettany movie Legion, called Dominion; while Robert Zemeckis will produce No Place, about a high-tech gated community that seems to exist outside reality.
There's a space opera show from Walking Dead producer Gale Ann Hurd in development, an urban fantasy series called Silver Shields—the slate looks like the table of contents from an issue of Locus.
Silver shields? Space opera?!
