The CW is about to get a whole lot darker, scarier and creepier with its 3 new pilot orders
First up we have Tales From the Dark Side
. For all those who are unaware, Tales From the Dark Side
(created by horror genius George A. Romero) was a classic horror anthology series that ran from 1983 to 1988. CW's version of the series has quite a few impressive individuals on-board. The project stems from executive producer and writer Joe Hill, who most notably wrote the novel Horns
which later had an on-screen adaptation that starred Daniel Radcliffe. Joining Hill (as additional executive producers), are Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin and Alex Kurtzman. All three have worked together before on projects such as Sleepy Hollow
The second pilot, which will be written and executive produced by Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals
) is titled Cordon
. Based on the Belgian series of the same name, Cordon
is an epidemic outbreak story that takes place in Atlanta and shows audiences the "devolution" of the human race and the on-going battle for survival. Joining Plec as an executive producer is director David Nutter, who has worked on series such as The Flash
Last up, is Dead People
which comes from Dawson's Creek
writer Tom Kapinos. Dead People
tells the story of an unlucky cab-driver that can interact with ghosts (including his ex-wife) after a near-death experience.
While all three pilots sound promising, I am the most excited for Tales From the Dark Side
. What are your thoughts on CW's latest additions? Yay or Nay? Let us know in the comments below!
