Jason Blum is on board to exec produce “Run for Your Life” for NBCUniversal’s Entertainment Networks Group, reports Variety, set to be a supernatural thriller centered on the last night of Dia de Los Muertos (aka Day of the Dead).
In the potential series, “A grieving detective is thrust into a deadly game to bring someone back from the dead.”

If the pilot ends up being developed into a series, it would air on either Syfy or USA.
Chris Cullari and Jennifer Raite wrote the pilot and will serve as co-executive producers. Patricia Riggen will direct and co-executive produce the pilot. Blum, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman and Jessica Rhoades will serve as executive producers for Blumhouse, with Lee Metzger also producing.
