Not content to scare the crap out of us on the big screen, legendary filmmaker John Carpenter is bringing his unique brand of horror to the small screen in a very big way.

During an appearance on the Killer POV Podcast, Carpenter’s wife (and frequent collaborator) Sandy King Carpenter confirmed they are currently developing four (yes, four) TV shows together. She didn’t go into any major details about what these projects might entail, but did confirm they’ll run the gamut from horror to sci-fi to sci-fi horror. 

Here’s an excerpt from her comments:

“Right now, there’s four series waiting to go to network. As far as I’m concerned, we’ll do all of them. I mean, they’re great, and they’re different from anything that’s out there, and they again push the boundaries of what’s horror. [John] would be directing pilots and we would be executive producing them. There’s sci-fi, there’s horror, there’s one that I guess would be [a] sci fi-horror futuristic kind of thing. They’re all across the board. I think they’ll fulfill what people expect out of him by also being unpredictable.”

No word on which networks could be in the mix, but Carpenter would almost certainly bring a solid bit of clout to any project, so it stands to reason at least one or two of these might eventually see the light of day. Hey, he’s already conquered the world of film, and most recently the music industry (his debut album is great, by the way). So why not TV?
