Don Mancini, creator of the original Child's Play franchise has teamed with Nick Antosca (Hannibal, Channel Zero) to develop a small screen adaptation of the classic horror film's ageless pint-sized terror. Airing on both the USA and SYFY Networks, Mancini coupled the announcement with a teaser, offering fans their first glimpse of the series.
To set the stage:
“After a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”
