“Dogg,” “Black Company,” “Dreamfall” Come To TV

A couple of key new TV series announcements today, starting with a drama series about rappers Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger’s experiences with Tha Dogg Pound, the gangsta rap duo featuring Dillinger and Kurupt. The project is being shopped to national networks.

Next, DiGa Studios has optioned bestselling author Amy Plum’s upcoming book “Dreamfall” for TV series adaptation. The story follows the journey of seven strangers, each suffering from debilitating insomnia, who agree to take part in an experimental sleep study.

When the lab equipment malfunctions, the subsequently comatose patients are plunged into a terrifying dream world where their worst nightmares become their reality.

Finally, IM Global Television has announced plans to develop a TV series adaptation of Glen Cook’s ten-book fantasy novel series “The Black Company” which “Buffy” actress Eliza Dushku and “Batman Begins” scribe David Goyer will executive produce.

The series follows the exploits of an elite mercenary unit that carries out the often nefarious deeds of the highest bidder across a Tolkeinesque landscape. Dushku will portray the pivotal role of the dark sorceress ‘The Lady’ who uses the unit to further her domination.
