Monstropolis - ABC Gives Put Pilot to Genre-Themed Project from Saw IV Writers



In one of the first big drama sales this development season, a genre-themed project from Saw IV and V writers Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan and producer Aaron Kaplan sparked a bidding before landing at ABC with a big put pilot commitment. The intention is to lay off the project, tentatively titled Monstropolis, at ABC Studios.

In Monstropolis, monsters are real, living amongst the humans in the city of New Manhattan (aka Monstropolis). But now someone is killing monsters, and it is up to one disgraced detective to stop the killer… or become the next victim. Melton and Dunstan are writing and will executive produce with Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment.

Contemporary monster mesh-up has been an arena ABC has been very interested in. In 2013, the network gave pilot order to Gothica, which was set in the present day and weaved together a mythology that incorporated the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray.

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
