Emily Rose Helmer Co-Creates New TV Series


Montana is about to be “visited”

Scott Derrickson, director of The Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Day the Earth Stood Still, is revisiting alien territory with Thunderstruck, a new television series.

Deadline reports the show was picked up by AMC. Derrickson is co-writing the project with Paul Boardman; David Eick of Battlestar Galactica is on board as well.

The site says Thunderstruck is “about powerful and enigmatic entities that begin appearing all over the world. After one shows up in the town of Great Falls, Montana, the local citizens must grapple with the dramatic effects and growing mystery of repeated visitations.”

Derrickson is currently at work on Sinister for the producers of Paranormal Activity.
