Pending an approved cast, Michael Bay (pictured above; Transformers), along with his Platinum Dunes gang Brad Fuller & Andrew Form, have a pilot order for their new TV show, “Occult” via A&E.
According to Deadline the project, written by James Wong (“The X-Files”), “draws parallels to X-Files and Fringe, centers on a FBI agent who returns from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with an agent with her own complicated backstory who specializes in the occult. Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force.”
There is no studio attached yet but, with a pilot order from a network in place, one shouldn’t be too hard to come by. With “Fringe” winding down this could be pretty cool if they do it right!
