There’s so much horror on TV nowadays that it’s getting hard to keep track of it all, but we do. Why? Because we’re badasses and you’re all so sexy. Well, that’s just two of the reasons really. In any event…
Deadline is reporting that Mena Suvari (Day of the Dead, Stuck) is finalizing a deal to play the lead in WEtv’s second original scripted series, thriller drama “South of Hell”.
The show, which has an eight-episode straight-to-series order for a 2015 premiere, comes from horror fav Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, The Green Inferno, Hostel).
A supernatural thriller set in South Carolina, “South of Hell” focuses on Maria Abascal (Suvari), a stunning demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within. Like those she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.
The premiere episode of “South of Hell” will be directed by Roth from a script by Matt Lambert.
