BARKER TO TELL HISTORY OF THE DEVIL
The Sci Fi Channel has announced a whole slate of new original movies and miniseries, and the most exciting for horror fans is HISTORY OF THE DEVIL. The six-hour limited series will be executive-produced by Clive Barker and his Seraphim Films and based on his play THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL, OR SCENES FROM A PRETENDED LIFE, in which Satan decides he wants to return to heaven and hires a top New York attorney to help make the case that he?s the lesser of the world?s evils. Peter Filardi, who wrote TNT?s upcoming ?SALEM?S LOT, will pen the adaptation and is also one of the executive producers.
Elsewhere on the Sci Fi Schedule is BLACKWATER, based on Michael (BEETLEJUICE) McDowell?s popular series of novels, being turned into a four-hour miniseries. It deals with a ?water witch? who marries into a powerful Southern family and uses her occult abilities to destroy her new kin?s enemies. No writer or director have been announced yet for this project.
