Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Syfy Series Superstition
"Very superstitious, writings on the wall" - sorry, we couldn't help ourselves. But, back to business - Mario Van Peebles and his new production company, MVPTV, is teaming up with Syfy for a new series called "Superstition".
Van Peebles will write, direct and star in some of the 13 episodes. The series will follow the Mosley family, owners of the only funeral home in a fictitious town on the outskirts of New Orleans, and keepers of the town's dark secrets and history. Known for its haunted houses, elevated graveyards, odd townsfolk, and rich history of unusual phenomena, the town is also a “landing patch” for the world’s darkest manifestations of fear, guided into the world by an ancient, mysterious malefactor named The Dredge.
Production is set to start in 2017. H/T to Shadow and Act for the story.
