CHILD’S PLAY: THE TV SERIES Will Feel Like Fan Fiction Made by Experts

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

And today, Mancini says the show will feel like fan fiction made by experts.

He tells SyFyWire: “What Bryan Fuller was doing with [Hannibal] felt like fan fiction made by experts, and I really love that aspect of it. So I feel like, in a way, we’re doing that with Chucky now. I’m working with all these really talented writers, all of whom are huge Chucky fans, many of whom grew up on Chucky, and despite the fact that that’s a painful reminder of my age, it’s great to hear their ideas and just to start incorporating stuff into it that I might not have thought of.”

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 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.
