Pinhead Comes To Television

Producers are adapting Clive Barker's "Hellraiser" film series into an hourlong TV show according to Sci-Fi Wire. Larry Kuppin, whose New World Entertainment hatched the first two Hellraiser films, will executive produce with Eric Gardner.

In the series, a tabloid journalist stumbles onto a plot between the ghoulish Pinhead and a software magnate that would have dire consequences for mankind.

Dimension Films continues to own the movie franchise rights, but Gardner has represented the property since Kuppin reacquired the New World film library from Ronald Perelman in 1991. A show runner will be named shortly to script a pilot episode.

Thanks to 'Kiddie'.
