American Mary TV series in the works from directors Jen and Sylvia Soska

Ten years ago, the writing and directing duo of Jen and Sylvia Soska (a.k.a. the Twisted Twins) teamed up with Katharine Isabelle of Ginger Snaps and Freddy vs. Jason to make the body horror film American Mary (pick up a copy HERE). To mark the film’s tenth anniversary, the Soskas have created “a variety of American Mary Ten Year Anniversary items for your collection and to celebrate a decade of modification”, which are available for purchase through their Etsy store. But that’s not the only way they’re celebrating. Speaking to a fan on Twitter, the Soskas revealed they are currently developing an American Mary TV series!

The Soskas said, “We are actually adapting American Mary into a tv series. I think you’ll dig the story that picks up where the film left off. Have always wanted to expand Mary’s world for a few seasons to really dig into her journey.

In case you need a refresher, American Mary tells the story of a medical student named Mary who is growing increasingly broke and disenchanted with medical school and the established doctors she once idolized. The allure of easy money sends a desperate Mary through the messy world of underground surgeries which leaves more marks on her than the so-called freakish clientele. Appearances are everything.

Isabelle plays the title character and is joined in the cast by Antonio Cupo, Tristan Risk, David Lovgren, Paula Lindberg, Julia Maxwell, John Emmet Tracy, Twan Holliday, Travis Watters, and the Soskas.

Things weren’t looking very good for Mary at the end of the film, but it sounds like the Soskas intend on reviving her for the TV series. And in that case, here’s hoping that Katharine Isabelle will be starring in the series.

The Soskas are currently gearing up to go into production on the psychological sci-fi thriller Unseen, an adaptation of the audio-only game BlindSide, so we should be hearing more about the American Mary TV series once they’re done working on that movie.
