Bloody Disgusting reader ‘Cliff L.’ tipped us off to a company that’s allegedly developing a television series based on the popular “Resident Evil” video games.
Clearly inspired by FOX’s “Gotham,” the series’ title is “Arklay,” described as northwest of Raccoon City. There, players found the Arklay Mountains, Arklay Mansion, and more notably the Arklay Laboratories.
Mance Media is behind said scripted series created by newbie Shawn Christopher Lebert. The show is said to delve into the mysterious homicides of Raccoon City.
Here’s the official pitch: “When Detective James Reinhardt is thrust into a series of bizarre homicides, he unravels the city is hiding a dark conspiracy. Learning a fatal virus is connected to it all, Reinhardt discovers it’s already coursing through him. With time no longer on his side, he must solve the conspiracy to save his own life.“
Below is a pitch reel used to show tone: it’s not footage from this series, but from “Hannibal” and others like it.
