Black Mask Studios has announced that horror maestros Wes Craven and Steve Niles are joining forces to adapt Black Mask’s upcoming comic book The Disciples into a TV show for Universal Cable Productions with Niles’ Black Mask co-founders Matt Pizzolo and Brett Gurewitz executive producing alongside Industry Entertainment’s Sara Bottfeld. The Disciples marks Black Mask’s latest foray into TV, joining the adaptation of Five Ghosts that Black Mask has in development at Syfy with Evan Daugherty writing the pilot.
The Disciples is a sci-fi/horror story about a team of interstellar private eyes tracking down a girl who’s run off to join a cult on Jupiter’s moon Ganymede… it’s ‘True Detective in space’ brought to you courtesy of Steve Niles and Christopher Mitten.
Niles co-founded Black Mask Studios with Pizzolo and Gurewitz in 2013 as a home for edgy and subversive comics.
The Disciples #1 comes to shelves May 27th.
