The CW television network is on the move to attract more youth-oriented viewers once again, developing a new series from Sherlock Holmes producer Dan Lin and “Veronica Mars” executive producer Jennifer Gwartz entitled “Dare”. Easy A writer Bert V. Royal is attached to pen the hour-long action-thriller from Lin Pictures and Warner Bros. Television.
Per THR the story revolves around a group of five twentysomethings who are forced to play a deadly game of Truth or Dare while trying to discover who is behind the game and how to stop it.
The deal continues Lin’s relationship with Warner Bros. Television, where he has an overall deal. Last year he developed “Poe”, a supernatural period crime procedural exploring how Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous stories came to be. ABC produced the pilot but ultimately passed on the drama in May. As for Gwartz, her credits lend themselves well to the action-drama: She cut her teeth on the “Tales From the Crypt” 1990s TV series and was an executive producer on “Cupid” as well as a co-EP on Starz’s “Party Down”.
Look for more soon!
