Are you a fan of stories about angels fighting humans and/or amongst themselves? If so, you’ll possibly have another new TV show to watch along with “Dominion” on Syfy as word has come that A&E is developing “The 36.” Read on for the details.
Per Deadline, A&E Network is developing the high-concept drama “The 36” with Immortals writers Charley and Vlas Parlapanides along with producer Michael London (The Illusionist, Milk).
The project’s title stems from the mystical Jewish concept of The Righteous 36, which stipulates that at all times there are 36 people in the world possessing special powers who don’t necessarily know each other, but if even one of them were to go missing, the world would come to an end.
If this premise sounds familiar, it was recently used on the Fox drama “Touch,” where such 36 people were hunted by a shady organization.
A&E’s “The 36” is set in New York and tells of the world of the Biblical fallen angels. These dark angels, or Nephilim, live among us and are only kept in check by The Righteous 36. It will center on Dane, a complicated hero who soon learns that he’s in the middle of this battle for the soul of mankind. The Parlapanideses are writing the script and will direct. They will also executive produce with London through his Groundswell Productions for A+E Studios.
