Gore Verbinski and Stephen Susco Developing Supernatural Crime Series THE BRINK for Starz

     March 15, 2011


Last November we heard Pirates of the Caribbean franchise director Gore Verbsinski and screenwriter Terry Rossio were teaming up for a magic based police procedural called Magical Law. Now Deadline has word that Verbinski is also working with The Grudge writer Stephen Susco on The Brink, a supernatural crime drama being developed by the Starz cable network. Based on J.C. Hutchins’ book Personal Effects: Dark Art, the series follows art therapist Zach Taylor’s investigation into the life and madness of Martin Grace, an accused serial killer who claims to have foreseen, but not caused, his victims’ deaths.

Apparently the series will have an interactive element with online components branching off from the show that is described as “equal parts House, CSI, and The X-Files.” Sounds like it could be pretty cool, but I haven’t subscribed to Starz in years, so I may have to wait for the eventual DVD release. Anyone interested?
