Showtime is in desperate need of another ‘cash cow’ now that Dexter is winding down. As such they’re developing a new supernatural series that has a very impressive pedigree behind it.
This new series, titled Sleep No More is being developed with Hung co-creators Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson. The show is set in a mysterious small town where the dead are returning to life. Not much else is known about it at this time, but the premise can’t help but remind of of Dead & Buried, and that alone is enough to make me curious.
Lipkin and Burson will do double duty as writers and executive producers. We’re still in the early stages of this one, but don’t fret. We’ll keep you appraised of all things Sleep No More as we hear it. In the meantime, take two minutes and savor this excellent trailer for Dan O’ Bannon’s 80s classic Dead & Buried. Not sure how this kind of a premise could sustain an ongoing television series, but I’d sure like to see someone give it the college try.
