Kevin Williamson sure can move fast when he wants to.
Only three weeks ago we discussed his TV deal with you and what it could mean for future Scream sequels – you know, the one that gave him sizable moolah and a degree of freedom to create more shows for CW, home of his Vampire Diaries. Now comes recent news of a new genre show from the scribe.
Vampire Diaries co-creator/ executive producer Kevin Williamson is working on a new supernatural drama project, envisioned as a potential companion for the CW’s flagship vampire drama. The untitled project, which is in early stages of development at Warner Bros. TV for the CW, focuses on a group of people who investigate paranormal happenings. I hear that that Williamson’s fellow Vampire Diaries co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec is in talks to come onboard and co-write the project with him. Since there is no deal with the network and no script yet, it is not clear if the paranormal drama would make it for this upcoming pilot season. (And no, the characters from the new show won’t find their way into an episode of Vampire Diaries.) This marks the first development project under the overall deal Williamson recently signed with Warner Bros. TV.
