Universal Cable Productions says it plans to move forward with the various TV projects it has in development that were developed with filmmaker Wes Craven.
Craven, who passed away over the weekend after a battle with brain cancer, had signed a first-look overall deal with UCB in April and was developing a whole slate of small screen fare.
Amongst these efforts were a TV series remake of his own 1991 film “The People Under the Stairs” film and an adaptation of Daryl Gregory’s “We Are All Completely Fine” for Syfy. The latter follows a psychologist who gathers survivors of five horror-movie scenarios in a support group, only to unlock the evil’s of their pasts in therapy.
He was also developing the sci-fi horror series “Disciples” which is set in the future in which our solar system has been colonised by the ultra-wealthy. MTV’s “Scream,” upon which Craven was an executive producer, has already been renewed for a second season and will continue forward.
In a statement, UCP says: “Wes Craven was a master artist, a gentleman and it was our pleasure to work with him. It is our intention to bring to life all the projects Wes developed at Universal Cable Productions. Thankfully these projects have benefited greatly from his development and guidance since their inception. They will continue in his honor and spirit.”
