According to Variety, RHI Entertainment which has recently been rebranded as Sonar Entertainment is co-developing with Eric Gardner’s Panacea Ent. Hellraiser. A TV Series based upon the horror movie franchise.
Gardner is said to executive produce along with Larry Kuppin, whose company New World Entertainment is behind the first two Hellraiser films.
Stewart Till told Variety, “The gap between an O.K. show and a great show is getting bigger and bigger and our obsession going forward will be to find high quality shows that people really want… If you look at our slate, you’ll see shows that have either a great brand name like ‘King Tut’ or ‘Hellraiser’ that arrive with a recognition, a build-in marketing platform and/or a great writer like ‘MPH’ with Steven E. De Souza.”
Synopsis: “One of the most successful (and terrifying) franchises in film history is ready for its weekly television debut.
For over 25 years, fans have followed the exploits of an insidious villain named Pinhead, summoned from a nightmarish underworld by an ancient puzzle box. He will seduce you with power and tempt you with fear, until your soul belongs to him.
Now, for the first time, a weekly series set in the fantastic realm of Hellraiser will thrill audiences worldwide.” [via Sonar Entertainment]
