AMC is no doubt enjoying the record-breaking ratings that “The Walking Dead” is giving them. That’s why it comes as no surprise the network would want to lock down some more tales of horror. Enter an adaptation of the novel The Terror.
According to Deadline, AMC has put in development “The Terror,” a drama series adaptation of the 2007 bestselling novel by Dan Simmons, which is being executive produced by Scott Free TV, Television 360, and feature producer Alexandra Milchan.
Written by hot feature writer David Kajganich, “The Terror” is set in 1847, when the crew of a Royal Naval expedition to find the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage discovers instead a monstrous predator – a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever. Kajganich executive produces with Scott Free’s David Zucker and Ridley Scott, TV 360′s Scott Lambert, and Meghan Lyvers, Milchan, and Simmons.
