Genre TV is where it’s all going down these days. It seems everybody and I do mean EVERYBODY is developing some sort of horror project for the small screen and today brings the news that ABC is returning the the true classics to bring us their next endeavor.
How about a modern retelling of the classic ‘Phantom of the Opera’?
Here’s the “ugh” moment (at least for me), it’s being billed as:
“..contemporary reimagining of Gaston Leroux’s gothic novel and set in the sexy and cutthroat world of the modern-day music business.” and is being explained as a “musical/drama in the vein of ‘Nashville’.”
Doesn’t sound very horrific to me (or does it?)
The project has received a script commitment from the network so it would appear as if things are moving along. Hang around, we’ll see where this one leads.
