James Wan is very well known to the horror genre: creator of such great moments of horror including Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring, Wan moved away from horror recently to direct Fast and Furious 7. However, he just can’t leave the genre.
While he is currently producing Insidious: Chapter 3, Wan has now been attached to direct a supernatural drama series for NBC.
Deadline had all the details on the series:
Source Code writer Ben Ripley will write Maidenhead, while Wan will direct and co-produce.
Maidenhead is described as a medical procedural wrapped in a very realistic, frightening supernatural drama.
When a scientist is called to a tony Connecticut suburb to investigate an ailing teen girl, he discovers that her affliction presents itself as a demonic contagion slowly spreading through the town. His team peels back the secrets and lies buried within the fabric of the community while medically deconstructing the tropes of demon mythology.
This is Wan’s first TV project, so expect more on this as it develops.
