Gore Verbinski Goes To The “Brink” For Starz

“Pirates of the Caribbean” film series director Gore Verbinski is teaming with “The Grudge” writer Stephen Susco to develop the supernatural crime drama series “The Brink” for the Starz cable network reports Deadline.

Based on J.C. Hutchins’ book “Personal Effects: Dark Art”, the series follows an art therapist’s investigation into the life of an accused serial killer who claims to have foreseen, but not caused, his victims’ deaths.

The series will also have an interactive element with online components branching off from a show that blends “House,” “The X-Files” and other crime procedurals.

The show continues Starz’ push into more dramatic programming to sit alongside its hit “Spartacus”, next month’s new series “Camelot”, the continuation of the British hit “Torchwood: Miracle Day” this Summer, and a gritty 60s-era drama set in Miami called “Magic City” likely to debut next year.
