A prequel series based on the popular Friday the 13th horror film franchise, Crystal Lake, is being developed by Peacock.
The series will be written, showrun, and executive produced by Bryan Fuller, television creator behind shows like American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery. A24, the production company behind films like Everything Everywhere All at Once and this year’s horror back-to-back hits, X and Pearl, will be in charge of the series’ production.
“I discovered Friday the 13th in the pages of Famous Monsters magazine when I was 10 years old and I have been thinking about this story ever since,” Fuller said in a statement. “When it comes to horror, A24 raises the bar and pushes the envelope and I’m thrilled to be exploring the camp grounds of Crystal Lake under their banner. And [NBCUniversal’s] Susan Rovner is simply the best at what she does. It’s a pleasure and an honor to be working with her again.”
