Invitation to a Bonfire and Demascus - Ordered to Series by AMC

AMC is moving forward with its series adaptation of Invitation to a Bonfire and sci-fi drama Demascus.

The cable network has handed series orders to both projects, which had writers’ rooms opened last August as part of the broadcaster’s ‘scripts-to-series’ model.

Based on the novel by Adrienne Celt, Invitation to a Bonfire is a psychological thriller set in the 1930s at an all-girls boarding school in New Jersey. Inspired by Vladimir and Vera Nabokov’s codependent marriage, the series follows Zoya, a young Russian immigrant and groundskeeper, who is drawn into a lethal love triangle with the school’s newest faculty member – an enigmatic novelist – and his bewitching wife.

Created by Chisholm, Demascus follows Demascus, a 33-year-old Black man on a mission of self-discovery and the burgeoning field of digital psychiatry that may be the key to defining his truest self. The series is a comedic genre-fluid coming-of-age story with a reality-bending premise that explores the gulf between Black male perspectives, while also attempting to answer Demascus’ personal question: “Who am I?”
