Wes Craven is developing two new horror shows for SyFy

Wes Craven is well know for making some of the most iconic horror movies to date, but now the acclaimed filmmaker is diving head-first into television. Not only is he producing MTV’s upcoming Scream series, Craven has reportedly inked a deal with NBCUniversal to develop two new shows for SyFy. While we don’t know much about the two shows, we do know that both of them will be horror shows. 

Horror filmmaker Wes Craven has signed a first-look deal with Universal Cable Productions to develop scripted programming for NBCUniversal and external networks. Under the pact, Craven and UCP have set up two projects at Syfy: an adaptation of Daryl Gregory’s book We Are All Completely Fine, with Craven set to write and direct, and a series based on Craven’s 1991 movie The People Under The Stairs. Additionally, UCP is developing internally another drama project with Craven, Disciples, based on Steve Niles’ upcoming graphic novel. “Wes is an icon whose films have captivated audiences for decades,” said UCP EVP Dawn Olmstead. “We’re thrilled to be working with him and to be able to bring his enormous talent and unique blend of horror, humor and intelligence to television.”
