Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton have written some great horrors over the years, including the Feast series, Saw 4,5 and 6, The Collector and The Collection and also the upcoming Halloween Returns (which Dunstan will direct).
The duo now have a TV series full of monsters on the way to ABC after a bidding war, and Deadline had all the details:
Monstropolis is a genre-themed project from Saw IV and V writers Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan and producer Aaron Kaplan.
In Monstropolis, monsters are real, living amongst the humans in the city of New Manhattan (aka Monstropolis). But now someone is killing monsters, and it is up to one disgraced detective to stop the killer… or become the next victim. Melton and Dunstan are writing and will executive produce with Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment.
Expect more on this as it develops.
