OC Scribe to Deliver Horror?
Wow, what a wacky concept! Okay, try and stay with me here; the pitch is a buddy cop show, right? But in a “hilariously horrifying” twist, the buddies are dedicated to bringing vampires, werewolves, and other creatures of the night to justice! My God what a great, original concept!
Actually it’s not, I’m sure there have been thousands of pitch just like, but when the idea comes from “The OC” scribe John Stephens, it’s automatically got more staying power than Billy Schmoe from down the street. Which is why Daily Variety is reporting that NBC has won the rights to make the show after a very heated battle for the concept.
I wish someone would battle over my wacky concept; I call it “CSI” meets “Harper Valley PTA”. If I told you more you wouldn’t sleep for weeks.
Stephens first working gig was on “The Gilmore Girls” for a few years before moving on to “The OC”, so one has to wonder how much genre cred he will bring to the project, which is still without a title. Though I doubt that will keep it from being succesful, as long as the man is good at what he does. Keep it here for more as we learn it!
