R.L. Stine’s Just Beyond Goes from Comics to Disney+
Disney+ has ordered the 8-episode series Just Beyond from writer Seth Grahame-Smith and produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The horror/comedy anthology is based on the best-selling BOOM! Studios graphic novel series from iconic children’s writer R.L. Stine and artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews. Grahame-Smith has a history of moving between horror and comedy as author of the bestselling novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and screenwriter of Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, The Lego Batman Movie and The Saint for director Dexter Fletcher and star Chris Pine.
A writers room is being assembled and the series is expected to come to Disney+ in the fall of 2021.
Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg’s KatzSmith will produce through their KatzSmith Productions and are represented by WME and Ziffren Brittenham.
