Its brief and its gravelly-voiced; check out the first promo for the upcoming WEtv and Eli Roth-produced exorcism series, South of Hell.
Starring Mena Suvari, South of Hell casts Charleston, South Carolina as the most possessed city in the world. Evil thrives there. Something with which 30-year-old exorcist Maria Abascal is intimately acquainted. She wrestles demons for a living. Especially Abigail, the one that lives within her. The one who feeds on damned souls and whos violated the laws of hell to live on earthand live on, inside Maria. Now, as they work as one, Maria will discover how personal her battle with evil has become and how far Abigail will go to protect them both. Its a journey where the unspeakable is just a heartbeat away.
South of Hell is produced by Roth and now Oscar nominee Jason Blum. The Roth-directed pilot will premiere this year. The director previously told EW, “Im thrilled to be a part of SOUTH OF HELL. Exorcism and possession stories have always fascinated me, and [writer] Matt Lambert has created an incredibly rich, original world in which to tell many stories of good, evil and everyones own personal inner demons.”
