NBC to develop horror drama Cul-De-Sac as part of Blumhouse franchise pitch

NBC has announced that they're looking to scare up a great opportunity for Blumhouse Presents with their upcoming horror drama CUL-DE-SAC. The new TV series is currently being orchestrated by writer Brian Sieve (TEEN WOLF), director Larysa Kondracki (THE FIX), Blumhouse Television and Universal Entertainment.

According to Deadline, Sieve will write and co-direct the program which is hoping to join the Blumhouse pantheon. The show is being planned as a serialized drama about three families living in a suburban cul-de-sac who begin to experience terrifying events and come to realize there’s something sinister invading their perfect middle-class dream.

In the past, Sieve has worked on shows like MTV's SCREAM: THE TV SERIES as well as TEEN WOLF - a show that had surprisingly long legs after falling in with THE VAMPIRE DIARIES crowd. As for Kondracki, she's recently spent her time directing episodes of shows like POWER, LEGION, SHUT EYE, GOTHAM and BETTER CALL SAUL. She's also a consulting producer on the show PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, a six-part limited series that made its Amazon premiere on May 25th. Kondracki directed select episodes of the mystery romance program which stars GAME OF THRONES alum Natalie Dormer, Lily Sullivan and Lola Bessis.
