Even if you’re heavily into comic books, Rachel Rising might not be a familiar title. However, The Hollywood Reporter is…reporting…that the indie comic book series has caught the eye of Alcon Television Group who wishes to bring the comic to life as a TV series.
A horror story for people who don’t like horror stories, Rising centers on a woman named Rachel who wakes up dead in a shallow grave. She begins to unravel the mystery of her death while crossing paths with not only friends but also a mysterious blonde woman who is tracking her and a horrific little girl named Zoe, out on a killing spree. Also figuring into the mix is the history of the local town, magic and witchcraft.
Terry Moore, the comic book’s creator, will serve as an Executive Producer along with Lloyd Levine who has similar credits on Hellboy and Watchmen. Rachel Rising joins an ever growing field of horror-related television series that include such names as: The Walking Dead, The Following, Bates Motel, American Horror Story, Hannibal and so on. In other words, it’s a good time to be a horror fan.
