Alcon Television Group, the TV arm of Alcon Entertainment, has snatched up the rights to develop Terry Moore's horror comic "Rachel Rising" for television, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Rachel Rising" centers on a woman named Rachel who wakes up dead in a shallow grave. She begins to unravel the mystery of her death while crossing paths with not only friends but also a mysterious blonde woman who is tracking her and a horrific little girl named Zoe, out on a killing spree. Also figuring into the mix is the history of the local town, magic and witchcraft."
Moore will serve as an executive producer with Lloyd Levin, a producer well-versed in the comics sphere with credits such as the HELLBOY movies and WATCHMEN. Alcon’s Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson and Sharon Hall will also executive produce.
Alcon is out to showrunners now, and sources say the project is already attracting interest from various networks at this early stage. That's really not surprising as horror seems to be the big thing on television right now with the successes of "The Walking Dead", "American Horror Story", "Bates Motel" and "Hannibal", to name a few.
