Clive Barker and Saw Scribes Getting Set to Haunt Your TV





Clive Barker and Saw Scribes Getting Set to Haunt Your TVA couple of weeks ago during our coverage of The Collector premiere, we told you briefly about Clive Barker teaming up with Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton to create a new horror TV series. We couldn't say much about it then, but now the cat is officially out of the bag!

According to THR, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are taking up residence at "Clive Barker's Hotel."

Fresh off Dunstan's feature directorial debut "The Collector", the pair have set up the "Hotel" pilot script at Warner Bros. Television, with a number of networks eying it as a potential series.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the project is expected to follow a series of ghoulish incidents at a haunted hotel. Barker, the creator of the landmark horror franchise "Hellraiser" and other well-known genre properties, is attached to produce [with] McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision also in talks to produce. Barker associate Joe Daley will co-produce.

Sound interesting? You betcha! Look for more soon!

Wow, great TV news. First we get The Walking Dead + Darabont. Now we get a weekly dose of Clive Barker. Sweet. The only way this could be better would be if it was a Books of Blood series on a premium channel. Most of his stories are better suited to a one-hour adaptation than a full feature, and I would love to see them produce the full series. There are already around 30 stories, so they would have 3 slightly-shortened seasons just by adapting what he's already done.
