“Dante’s Inferno” Becomes An L.A.-Set Drama

Dantes Inferno Becomes An L A Set Drama

Freeform has begun development of “Dante’s Inferno,” a contemporary drama series inspired by the famed first third of the 14th century poetic masterpiece from “The Divine Comedy” and represents a soul’s journey.

The story is set against the demonic underworld of present-day Los Angeles and follows Grace Dante, who thought her life sucked. Between parenting her drug addict mother and her troubled brother, the twentysomething hero has had to give up all her dreams.

Then one day everything changes and her dreams start magically coming true, school, career, love… but the godfather of all this good fortune is the Devil himself. And to outwit him, she’ll have to journey through Dante’s Inferno.

Ethan Reiff & Cyrus Voris (“Knightfal”l), Nina Fiore & John Herrera (“The Handmaids Tale”), Danielle Claman Gelber (“One Chicago”) and Studio 71 are all producing.
