Clive Barkers horror series, HELLRAISER, has pinned a hour-long TV deal, reports VARIETY. Panacea Ent., Park Avenue Ent. and Blueprint Ent. will produce the project. New Worlds Larry Kuppin will exec produce with Eric Gardner. Dimension films still holds the feature rights, but Kuppin has repped the series since 1991.
The plot will follow a tabloid journalist who stumbles onto a diabolical plot between Pinhead and a zillionaire software exec.
"The mythology of the character and the series has been worked out slowly over the years," Kuppin said. "Pinhead is one of the most branded characters in the horror genre. There are all kinds of psychological angles to be explored, along with a good scare."
