Relativity Television is developing a television series based on Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli’s comic book horror series Hack/Slash. Adrian Askarieh and Ray Ricord are producing and have brought in writer Skip Woods (A Good Day To Die Hard, Swordfish) to handle the scripting duties. Where this new series might end up is still a good question, regular network, cable, premium channel, Netflix or some other streaming service, along with all the new gaming systems trying to build streaming networks.
Here’s the comic book synopsis:
Hack/Slash centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the cliche of the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. However, the emotionally damaged girl not only survived but has become a killer of killers. Along with a burly protector named Vlad, Hack travels across the country hunting slashers in the vein of Halloween‘s Michael Myers, Friday the 13th‘s Jason Voorhees and A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger.
There’s definitely a place for this series on television. Dexter did well and a series about hunting down serial slashers could be a lot of fun. What do you think?
