Fox TV Studios is gearing up production on “Persons Unknown,” the first TV series from Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie, says The Hollywood Reporter.
FtvS has partnered with Mexican media giant Televisa to make 13 episodes of “Persons,” which will start filming Oct. 27 in Mexico for the U.S. marketplace. Additionally, Televisa will air “Persons” in Mexico, and FtvS also is negotiating with a leading Italian broadcaster.
“Persons” is executive produced by The Usual Suspects writer McQuarrie, his wife and producing partner Heather McQuarrie and the series’ showrunner Remi Aubuchon.
“Persons” is a mystery drama about seven strangers — four of them played by Alan Ruck, Chadwick Boseman, Gerald Kyd and Kate Lang Johnson — who wake up in a deserted town with no recollection of how they got there, only to realize that they are watched by omnipresent security cameras and that there is no escape. To survive, they must come together to solve the puzzle of their lives.
Decors for the fictional town are being built in Ajusco near Mexico City, where “Persons” will be filmed.
