Triple dose of Wes Craven.


According to Deadline, Wes Craven has signed a “first-look deal with Universal Cable Productions to develop scripted programming for NBCUniversal and external networks”. They’re already planning three TV series for Syfy under the deal: an adaptation of Daryl Gregory’s horror novel We Are All Completely Fine, an adaption of Craven’s 1991 film The People Under the Stairs, and Disciples, a sci-fi horror story set in the near future.


Craven will write and direct the pilot of We Are All Completely Fine, which is summarized as follows:

We Are All Completely Fine tells the story of Dr. Jan Sayer, an enigmatic psychologist who gathers survivors of five horror-movie scenarios in a support group – and unwittingly unlocks the evils of her patients’ pasts. As their traumas are brought back to the surface, they uncover which monsters they face are within — and which are lurking in plain sight.

Craven will be executive-producing The People Under the Stairs as well as Disciples.

The People Under the Stairs synopsis:

The People Under The Stairs is described as a contemporary Downton Abbey meets The Amityville Horror. When a young woman goes missing at the grand Robeson Family Manor, her search unveils the centuries-old horrors that lie deep within the estate.

Disciples synopsis:

Disciples is a sci-fi horror story set in the near future where the ultra-wealthy have become true masters of the universe, colonizing moons throughout the solar system. One colonist, McCauley Richmond, has built a new sdisciplesociety on Ganymede, the largest moon of Jupiter, where his flocks of cultists worship him. Three “deep space” private eyes have been hired by a high-ranking senator to venture out to Ganymede and retrieve his teenage daughter, who’s been brainwashed into joining Richmond’s cult.
