We haven’t seen a horror TV show in the medical field for a while, so this news sounds like it could be refreshing. NBC is developing a supernatural medical drama called Maidenhead. James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw) is set to direct the project.
Jon Davis’ Sony TV-based Davis Entertainment is bringing together a feature writer, Source Code‘s Ben Ripley, and director, Fast & Furious 7‘s James Wan, for a drama project, which has sold to NBC with significant penalty.
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.
More on this as it comes in.
