CHILD’S PLAY: THE TV SERIES Will Give Chucky New Weapons & Targets

SYFY and showrunner/creator Don Mancini’s Chucky aka Child’s Play: The TV Series will utilize “pretty much 100% puppetry” and preserve the straightforward scariness of the original film. And today Mancini teases the series will give Chucky new weapons, new strategies, and new targets, and new goals.

Mancini recently teased SyFyWire: “It’s so important to give Chucky new weapons, new strategies, and new targets, new goals … Chucky has a different goal in the TV show than he’s ever had before, and it’s specifically something that is designed to evoke something that’s going on in the zeitgeist today.”

Sounds good to us!

In the new television series, after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.

Produced by UCP, the series will be executive produced by creator Don Mancini (Hannibal, Channel Zero), David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus, Frailty), and Nick Antosca (The Act, Channel Zero) via his banner Eat the Cat, through his overall deal with the studio. Emmy-nominated Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks, Channel Zero) will also serve as executive producer. Mancini, who penned the film franchise, will also write the adaptation, serve as showrunner and direct the first episode.
