‘House Of Night’: ‘ShadowHunters’ Producers Adapting Ya Vampire Saga For TV

‘House Of Night’: ‘ShadowHunters’ Producers Adapting Ya Vampire Saga For TV
Exclusive: ShadowHunters producers Don Carmody and David Cormican will adapt the New York Times No. 1 bestselling House of Night series, the Ya vampire saga written by the mother-daughter tandem of P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast, for television. Carmody and Cormican board the project with Davis Films, according to Victor Hadida, Davis Films’ president.

Hadidia said Oscar-winning producer Carmody (Chicago) and International Emmy-nominated producer Cormican (Tokyo Trial) are the ideal team to adapt the fang saga into a live-action TV series through their Don Carmody Televison, the 6-year-old shingle that most recently delivered Northern Rescue for Netflix.

Carmody has considerable history with Davis, having produced both Silent Hill films, a few Resident Evil installments and most recently Lucky Day by writer-director Roger Avary.

“My late brother Samuel and I purchased the production rights to this amazing set of books a few years ago [before his death last year], and had been looking for the right

Creator David Cormican Talks The Real Life Inspiration For Netflix’s ‘Northern Rescue’

Tragedy, resilience, and family ties are at the heart of Netflix’s upcoming family drama “Northern Rescue.” Created by David Cormican, the series debuted on the streaming service March 1.

Following the West family in the midst of tragedy and loss, the first two of the series’ ten episodes seethe death of the family matriarch, which then spurs the patriarch, John West (Billy Baldwin), to pick up and move his three children Maddie (Amalia Williamson), Scout (Spencer Macpherson) and Taylor (Taylor Thorne) back to his childhood home of Turtle Bay Island to live with his sister-in-law Charlie (Kathleen Robertson), where he takes a job as the head of the sleepy town’s search and rescue team.

Cormican is no stranger to Netflix — he’s worked with streaming giant before on what he calls “sci-fi genre-skewing” shows like “Between” and “Shadow Hunters” as well as on historical drama “Tokyo Trial.”

No One Over 22 Is Left Alive In New Trailer For Netflix’s Between

Unlike House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Daredevil and Bloodline, Netflix isn’t making much of a promotional push for its upcoming series Between. Perhaps that’s because it’s a co-production with Canadian networks, which means it’ll be un-bingeable, diverging from the Netflix model by launching on May 21 and releasing a new episode weekly. Let the impatient viewer rioting commence.

A survivalist thriller set in the small town of Pretty Lake, Between kicks off as a mysterious plague kills off every resident of the town over the age of 21. The government quarantines the town, leading to a power vaccum and struggle for dominance as the teens go to war with one another in order to stay alive. Think Lord of the Flies with moody, disinterested youth.

It’s a very similar premise to Michael Grant’s bestselling Gone series, which Sony Pictures Television is planning to adapt for the small screen,
