SCARY ROAD TRIP SERIES
Variety reports that the WB has ordered a one-hour supernatural series pilot from director McG (CHARLIE?S ANGELS) and writer Eric Kripke, the original scribe on Screen Gems? upcoming BOOGEYMAN. The show, which is currently untitled, follows a college graduate who accepts a cross-California ride home from his estranged brother, with the two winding up detouring and encountering a series of weird creatures and characters from U.S. folklore. ?They?re all specifically American, be it a wendigo, a Native American creature or Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil at a crossroads,? Kripke told the trade. ?It?s a show about the bloody, beating heart of America.? No cast has yet been announced.
