MCG READY TO DABBLE IN HORROR
The WB network has ordered a supernatural-themed pilot from McG, director of the Charlie's Angels films and executive producer of Fox's teen drama The O.C., and Eric Kripke, executive producer of the short-lived WB series Tarzan, Variety reported. The untitled project, described as X-Files meets Route 66, will be produced by Warner Brothers Television and McG and Stephanie Savage's Wonderland Sound and Vision.
The show will revolve around a pair of brothers on a road trip who encounter unusual ghosts and local creatures straight out of American folklore and urban legends, the trade paper reported. 'They're all specifically American, be it a windigo, a Native American creature, or Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil at a crossroads,' Kripke said. 'It's a show about the bloody, beating heart of America.'
