The Wolfman is Going to Howl Again on NBC


The WolfmanNBC is going horror crazy, gobbling up properties to sate the needs of those looking for the supernatural on the small screen.  Deadline reports the network is now developing a series based on The Wolfman and asserts it is based on the 2010 remake.  I'm not sure if it matters if it's based on the original film or the remake, because the series just sounds like a general re-telling/extension of The Wolf Man mythos.

According to Deadline, the show…

"…is described as a supernatural thriller that explores what it means to be a man and to be human. It centers on Lawrence Talbot, who is afflicted by an ancient curse and jacks into the powerful, primordial soul of the alpha-predator."

Dan Knauf is spearheading the series.  He's also an executive producer/writer on NBC's current Dracula series (is anyone still tuning into that?  If so, how is it…I lost track after episode one).

Knauf's history also includes Wolf Lake and Carnivale.  He's also got another supernatural series in the works at NBC.  This one is untitled at the time of this writing.

"The untitled telenovela is an original concept that chronicles the ruthless supernatural machinations of the six governesses of an exclusive Hancock Park women’s club, the true powers behind every throne in The City of Angels."
