Banner will produce scripted genre series

Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision has signed an exclusive first-look deal with Legendary Television Studios.

Under the multi-year deal, the genre-driven production company, lead by Wood, Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Lisa Whalen, will develop scripted series for Legendary. Claire Bargout will join SpectreVision as director of development for scripted series.

SpectreVision is behind arthouse films like “Mandy,” “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” and “Cooties.” Their recent film, “Daniel Isn’t Real,” premiered at South by Southwest and is slated for a late 2019 release. A follow-up, “Color Out of Space,” an H.P. Lovecraft adaptation by Richard Stanley, is in post-production.

“We’ve found kindred spirits in the visionary folks at Legendary, and we’re excited to create vital and ambitious television in the genre space,” said Wood, who serves as creative director.

“For a boutique company like ours to expand into television meant finding exactly the right partners, and we couldn’t be happier to have found those partners in Legendary,” said Whalen, CEO of SpectreVision and its parent company, Company X.

“SpectreVision has proven itself an exemplary leader in the indie genre space, creating unique entertainment that truly captivates audiences,” said Nick Pepper, president of Legendary Television Studios. “We are thrilled to be partnering with them and look forward to developing future projects together.”
