It Follows’ Mitchell Developing Crime Series, Mr. Postman



Following the success of this year’s stunning independent horror film, It Follows, director David Robert Mitchell is keeping things dark with crime (maybe crime-horror) series, Mr. Postman

Deadline reports Mitchell teams with Universal Cable Productions and Benderspink on Mr. Postman, which concerns “a mailman who investigates the dark mysteries within his all-American town after a horrific event occurs on his own street.”

Dawn Olmstead, Executive Vice President, Development at UCP, who recently inked a first-look deal on two Syfy series with Wes Craven, says “David is a true artist with incredible vision that I believe will be a game changer in storytelling both in television and film. We are very excited to take out Mr. Postman, his first TV project. It’s like nothing else out there.”

Here’s hoping Mr. Postman ends up on our side of things. For more on Mitchell, see our talk about It Follows with the filmmaker.
