Here’s some info on a new show that should be right up our alley! South of Hell is slated to be an eight-part horror thriller starring Mena Suvari as a demon hunter for hire.

South of Hell

Horror gurus Eli Roth (Hostel) and Jason Blum (Sinister) are exec producing the show, which has been penned by James Manos (The Shield).

Set in South Carolina, the series follows Maria Abascal (Suvari), a demon hunter for hire. Her work, however, means she has her own inner demon in the shape of Abigail, who feeds on the energy of the monsters she pursues.

The drama is for WE tv, the US cable channel that is moving into drama.

Roth directed the first of the eight one-hour episodes and the series will debut on WE tv later this year. US producer and distributor Sonar is selling South of Hell internationally and will be marketing the show in Cannes.

“It is the first pairing of horror masters Eli Roth and Jason Blum and it is a nice blend of genres, with a lot of thriller elements and a lot in there for horror fans,” says Jenna Glazier, Sonar’s senior VP, television.

AMC Networks channel WE tv is has a female skew, and with its strong female lead, South of Hell will appeal to women viewers. However, there is also a strong male character of note in David (Zachary Booth), the demon-hunting brother of Maria. CSI actor Bill Irwin plays the demon slayers’ father.

The series embodies the new form of high-end serialised TV drama, Glazier says. “It has a lot of film pedigree behind it with Mena Suvari, Eli Roth and Jason Blum. It was shot on location in Charleston, and that southern element figures heavily; it is a character in the series.

“South of Hell definitely pushes the envelope with storytelling, and has horror, and moments that are very suspenseful. It is a scary, thrilling and visually stunning series.

She adds: “We’ll have Mena Suvari at MIPTV and she embodies the series.”

A&E is ready to Let the Right One In.

The network is teaming with Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis and actor-screenwriter Brandon Boyce to adapt the Swedish vampire story, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
A&E landed the story, about a bullied teen boy who befriends a young female vampire — based on the best-selling Swedish book by John Ajvide Lindqvist that was subsequently adapted into the critically acclaimed 2008 movie directed by Tomas Alfredson — following a bidding war with Showtime.

The drama follows the boy and female vampire, who lives in secrecy with her mysterious guardian. When a series of strange murders pops up in their small Vermont town, it attracts the attention of a federal marshal with a mysterious past of his own.

The drama, which is in the development stage, is being produced in- house via A+E Studios and Marty Adelstein’s and Becky Clements’ (Teen Wolf, Aquarius) Tomorrow Studios. Davis, Boyce, Adelstein, Clements and Simon Oakes will executive produce. The property was optioned from Hammer Films Productions, which produced the 2010 English-language film adaptation Let Me In.

For Boyce, Let the Right One In comes after a recurring role on MTV’s werewolf remake Teen Wolf, in which he played Dr. Vandenburg for showrunner Davis. His credits include the screenplays for Apt Pupil and Wicker Park. He recently also broke through as a novelist with his debut title, period Western Here By the Bloods, bowing as the first of a three-book deal with Kensington Publishing. Boyce is repped by ICM Partners, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and Bloom Hergott.
Davis, meanwhile, has steered MTV’s Teen Wolf remake for four seasons. Let the Right One In marks his latest genre remake after starting his career with a script that ultimately became CBS’ Criminal Minds. He’s repped by WME, Magnet Management and Jackoway Tyerman.

For A&E, Let the Right One In — a foreign hit that grossed $9.1 million internationally on its way to a worldwide gross of $11.2 million — comes as the network’s original scripted roster consists of two remakes: long-running Bates Motel (based on Psycho) and a reboot of French zombie drama The Returned, both from Carlton Cuse, and the upcoming fourth season of CBS import Unforgettable.

Remakes have been all the rage this development season, with film-to-TV adaptations earning pilot orders at the broadcast networks this season, including Rush Hour (CBS), Problem Child (NBC), Uncle Buck (ABC) and more.

A&E’s Let the Right One In marks the second time the book has been translated for U.S. audiences. Matt Reeves rebooted the film with Chloe Grace Moretz and Kodi Smit-McPhee in 2010 as Let Me In, which earned $24.1 million worldwide (evenly split between domestic and foreign audiences). The 2008 film was wildly praised, earning a BAFTA nomination as best film not in English, in addition to wins from critics groups in Boston, Chicago, Florida, Toronto and several others.

With the premiere of “iZombie” on March 17, The CW will show viewers a different kind of zombie epidemic — one that isn’t quite as horrifying as you may be used to. Zap2it sat down to speak with the cast and crew of the show at the 2015 winter TV press tour to find out exactly what those who tune in should be expecting.

If while watching the first episode the show seems remarkably like “Veronica Mars,” don’t be surprised. “iZombie” comes from executive producers Rob Thomas, Diane Ruggiero, Dan Etheridge and Danielle Stokdyk — otherwise known as the brain trust (pun intended) behind “Veronica Mars.”

They’ve also brought some of that show’s tricks to the table for “iZombie.” Though Liv (Rose McIver) is a zombie, she’s a young woman solving crimes while her internal monologue narrates the story. Sound familiar, Marshmallows? If that’s not enough, Ryan Hansen — who played Dick Casablancas on “Veronica Mars” — has signed on to guest star in an episode.

That’s not the only show “iZombie” may remind you of, though. “I think, to me, it’s like Buffy dealing with vampires in ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,'” McIver says. “It’s like there’s a world in which Liv is still functioning, she has relationships, rent to pay and a life, of sorts.”

Unlike most zombie movies — and the juggernaut that is “The Walking Dead” — “iZombie” isn’t a world overrun by zombies. In fact, there’s only two undead that viewers know of from the beginning: Liv and Blaine (David Anders).

“Doing a show on The CW, there’s no way to out-apocalypse ‘The Walking Dead.’ They can show the shotgun blast to the face and all the stuff you need to do a good zombie apocalypse show,” Thomas explains. “If we’re going to do a zombie show on The CW, we’re going to need another spin.”

Instead of focusing on a group of the living trying to survive against an army of the dead, the zombies will be trying to figure out how to function in the world. The zombies themselves are also very different, with the abilities to think, feel and act.

When viewers first meet Liv, she’s not yet a zombie and she’s good at pretending to be happy. It’s joining the ranks of the undead that shows her how to appreciate life.

“She had been a character who had done everything she was supposed to do. She had essentially not stopped to smell the roses,” Thomas says. “Weirdly, being a zombie opens up the world to her in some way.”

That’s where helping solve crimes comes into play. The possibility of helping people is something she finds for herself, rather than what was laid out for her.

The munching on brains helps too. When Liv digs into her favorite snack, she temporarily takes on the memories and passions from the person it came from. Experiencing life through their eyes will help her feel more comfortable venturing outside of her own comfort zone.

Know from the get-go that Liv’s fellow zombie Blaine — who seems like the coolest guy around — is actually the villain of the story. Though you are going to want to love him, he’s serious trouble. “He’s a bad guy and does very bad things,” Thomas confirms.

It’s going to be hard to dislike the character at first. Even the crew can’t seem to get enough of him, as Thomas adds, “The poor writers who get the Blaine-less episodes are so disappointed because he’s so much fun.”

“I’m glad that we start painting him as a cool guy,” Anders says.

However, as the season progress, viewers will come to understand exactly who Blaine is and the danger he poses to Liv and the world. “Later on in the season, he does some ruthless things and starts twisting his mustache,” Anders teases.

Liv broke off her engagement with Major after becoming a zombie, but the two of them still see each other — a lot, since they’re close with each other’s friends and family. While he may be very slowly rediscovering the dating world, all roads seem to lead back to Liv.

Of course, she knows that as a zombie there can’t be a future for them. “Because of the fact that any slight scratch or accident could turn Major into a zombie, there’s no wiggle room,” Buckley says. “Liv has to operate in absolutes. There’s no future and she has to shut that door.”

Things aren’t quite as clear cut for Major, since he doesn’t know about Liv’s affliction. “Major’s still very much hopeful, still very much in love,” Buckley adds. The poor guy just can’t catch a break.

While the undead in “iZombie” may not be quite as terrifying as those normally seen in movies, Ravi — the medical examiner Liv works for — is a little too casual about being best friends with a zombie.

He’s the only living person who knows Liv’s secret and it doesn’t scare him away. Instead, he’s more fascinated and wants to learn everything about her and the condition she’s found herself with.

“Here’s this medical miracle and … he could be the person to cure it,” McIver teases.

His connection to Liv won’t end at trying to fix her, though. “Over the course of the season, [Ravi] becomes more entwined in her life,” Kohli says.

That includes a friendship with her former fiance, Major, which will no doubt irritate Liv. “Ravi and Major developing their dynamic is really funny,” McIver teases. “They’re both total gamers and there’s a scene where they game together.”
