SYFY has placed a straight to series order for CHUCKY, the red-haired, freckled-faced doll possessed by the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Produced by UCP, the series will be executive produced by creator Don Mancini ("Hannibal," SYFY's CHANNEL ZERO), David Kirschner ("Hocus Pocus," "Frailty"), and Nick Antosca (Hulu's "The Act," SYFY's CHANNEL ZERO) via his banner Eat the Cat, through his overall deal with the studio. Emmy(R)-nominated Harley Peyton ("Twin Peaks," SYFY's CHANNEL ZERO) will also serve as executive producer. Mancini, who penned the film franchise, will also write the adaptation, serve as showrunner and direct the first episode. "The character Don and David created has terrified audiences for over 30 years. The longevity and legacy of Chucky speaks to the creative storytelling and the loyal fans the film series has collected over the years," said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks - USA & SYFY. "We are excited to once again partner with Nick and UCP on this new SYFY series, and are incredibly proud to bring Chucky to television for the first time with the original creators." In the new CHUCKY television series, after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town's hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies - and allies - from Chucky's past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll's untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:· Brad Dourif as Chucky (Voice)CREW INFORMATION:· David Kirschner as EP· Don Mancini as CRTR/EP/DIR (Pilot)· Harley Peyton as EP· Nick Antosca as EP
