Yet another “apocalyptic drama” is possibly heading our way as The CW has greenlit “The Messengers,” from feature producer Basil Iwanyk and CBS TV Studios, for a pilot.
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell (“Teen Wolf”) with “The Good Wife” executive producer Ted Humphrey supervising, “The Messengers” starts with a mysterious object crashing down to earth. A group of seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse but then awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse.
Iwanyk (The Clash of the Titans franchise) executive produces through his Thunder Road Television. Thunder Road’s SVP Film & TV Kent Kubena and Industry Entertainment’s Ava Jamshidi also executive produce, with O’Donnell co-exec producing.
We’re not sure how Dread-worthy this will turn out to be, but we’ll keep our eyes and ears open.
