Maidenhead - NBC Buys Supernatural Medical Drama with Penalty

This development season, Davis’ Sony TV-based Davis Entertainment again is bringing together a feature writer, Source Code‘s Ben Ripley, and director, Fast and the Furious 7‘s James Wan, for a drama project, which has sold to NBC with significant penalty.

Written by Ripley and to be directed by Wan, Maidenhead is described as a medical procedural wrapped in a very realistic, frightening supernatural drama. A scientist is called into a tony Connecticut suburb to investigate an ailing teen girl to discover her affliction presents itself as a demonic contagion slowly spreading through the town. Our team peels back the secrets and lies buried within the fabric of the community while medically deconstructing the tropes of demon mythology.

This marks the first TV project for Wan, who has a strong genre background with the Saw and Insidious horror franchises. He and Ripley executive produce with Davis’ John Davis and John Fox. This marks Davis Entertainment’s second sale this season.
