You might be familiar with director McG. He has worked on such projects as Charlie’s Angels or how about the short lived action series Fastlane or maybe Korn’s Who Then Now?. Well, either way it seems like the man might be coming into a little horror action. Not sure how I feel about that just yet, as I really didn’t like Charlie’s Angels and wish everyday I could have gotten that two hours back. So let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope he doesn’t screw this up.
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.”
