Is television quickly becoming overly swamped with horror themed shows? Or can the medium really help expand stories and develop characters beyond the usual 2 hour feature length. Well NBC seem to think the latter as they're busy developing a new series based on Joe Johnston's 2010 monster horror feature 'The Wolfman'. Deadline have picked up on news of the new project which Dan Knauf ('Dracula', 'Carnivale') will be heading. With yesterday's announcement of an upcoming show based on Frank Darabont's 'The Mist' it does seem that absolutely anything is up fro grabs at the moment. The movie, which was a remake of Curt Siodmak's 1941 version of the 'The Wolf Man', starred Benicio Del Toro ('Sin City') and Emily Blunt ('Looper').
'The Wolfman' series "...is described as a supernatural thriller that explores what it means to be a man and to be human. It centers on Lawrence Talbot, who is afflicted by an ancient curse and jacks into the powerful, primordial soul of the alpha-predator."
