A new live-action series based on R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps is in the works. Scholastic Entertainment, the media division of Scholastic, is teaming with Neal H. Moritz, producer of the Goosebumps and Goosebumps 2 films, and Sony Pictures TV to develop the series.
Moritz said: “I loved making the Goosebumps movies and can’t wait to bring even more of R. L. Stine’s incredible stories to life through a high-end television series that speaks to both adults and kids alike.”
Scholastic Entertainment President and Chief Strategy Officer Iole Lucchese says: “Goosebumps has been keeping kids and families on the edge of their seats for nearly 30 years and we’re very excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television and Neal H. Moritz to bring the enduring brand to life in a fresh new way for today’s generation. From the world-famous book series to a full-scale licensing program and even live-action movies starring Jack Black, Goosebumps remains wildly popular and we look forward to presenting new adventures to give fans even more Goosebumps.”
The series will be executive produced by Lucchese, along with Caitlin Friedman, Scholastic’s SVP & General Manager, Moritz, and Originals Head of Television Pavun Shetty.
