Mena Suvari To Topline WE TV Thriller Drama Series ‘South Of Hell’ From Jason Blum & Eli Roth

The show, which has an eight-episode straight-to-series order for a 2015 premiere, comes from top horror producers Jason Blum and Eli Roth, in their first pairing. A supernatural thriller set in South Carolina, South Of Hell focuses on Maria Abascal (Suvari), a stunning demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within. Like those she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.

Nothing out of the ordinary, but the first sounded a bit like an Adjustment Bureau plot if only for Matt Damon.

Hey, a new thread.

Dark Matter sounds like it might be interesting. At least it's another Space Opera in the works.

A series about a young, heroic Charles Darwin? That's bound to annoy the Creationists. I love it!

It will also be ironic if it's killed off in the ratings.

I don't know, being on the CW, I get the impression this young Charles Darwin adventures will probably be as historically accurate as Reign. So much so, I expect a crossover between the two shows which doesn't involve time travel...

Well, the link mentions "mysterious creatures, mythical cities and dangerous foes beyond their wildest imagination," so I'm guessing it's not going to be a documentary.

I'm okay with not being 100% faithful to historical fact. But if he starts taking selfies with his phone and posting them on Facebook or Twitter, I think it'll be time to walk away from that show.

Ditto. But given that we have two Sherlock Holmes series set in the present, I wouldn't be surprised.

Ryan Murphy & His ‘Glee’ Co-Creators Get Fox Series Order For Comedy-Horror Anthology ‘Scream Queens’

In their first big programming move at Fox, Fox TV Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman have given a 15-episode straight-to-series order to one of their most trusted creators at 20th Century Fox TV, Ryan Murphy. With Glee wrapping its run on Fox, the network has ordered comedy-horror anthology Scream Queens, from Glee creators Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. This marks the second straight-to-series order for an anthology series for Murphy and Falchuk on the heels of FX greenlighting an American Crime Story spinoff from the duo’s hugely successful horror anthology series American Horror Story.

The first installment of Scream Queens, created by Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan, revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2015

Sounds good to me. Another anthology. But I wonder if by anthology they mean a new story every episode or a new story every season.

^ A new story every season, from what I understand.

It's hilarious that Murphy seems to think that they've created the "new" genre of "comedy-horror," though!
