The small screen is now the big dog as every studio is clamoring to find the next big screen for at-home audiences.
The Weinstein Company is already working with Miramax to develop TV projects from their properties – like the forthcoming “Scream” series – and now have a few more genre efforts in the works.
In an article at the New York Times, the Weinstein Company revealed that they’re currently working on a “Sin City” series, as well as a developing a proposed 10-part series with Frank Darabont, based on Dimension’s film version of Stephen King’s “The Mist”!
Bob Weinstein said he was hoping to quickly follow the August release of the film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, with the “Sin City” television series from both Miller and Rodriguez.
The genre is hotter than ever on the small screen. It only makes sense to take these larger stories and develop them where the story can be nurtured in a way movies can’t.
