Don Mancini and producer David Kirschner are hard at work on Child’s Play: The TV Series and today we have some new info via ur buddies over at Bloody Disgusting who meditated a panel at ScreamFest this weekend where Mancini and Kirschner talked about the upcoming series.
“We deliberately ended Cult with a bunch of cliffhangers to set up a TV series,” Mancini said. “Because there are so many different threads now, television could best accommodate that so that was done intentionally. At the same time, we have a whole new world, a bunch of new characters which we can say nothing about.”
“The only thing I think we can say is from the original film that Don wrote, Child’s Play, we are playing with that concept again, the idea of child’s play,” Kirschner said. “I’ll let you guys fill in the pieces of that.”
“It involves children,” Mancini adds. “We saw that after seven movies, how can we flip again? So this time not by merely changing genre but by changing medium. This will give us a different kind of canvas, a much bigger canvas to explore characters and relationships.”
