FOX has announced its latest series orders this week for the 2016-17 television season and big congratulations go to HH client BEN DANIELS, whose pilot The Exorcist is one of six new shows picked up by the network.
The Exorcist will offer a modern reinvention of the classic horror franchise inspired by William Blatty’s original 1971 book, more than four decades after the Academy Award-nominated film solidified itself as the greatest horror movie ever made. Returning now in series format, the show is written by Jeremy Slater, directed by Rupert Wyatt and will be a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession. Alfonso Herrera stars as Father Tomas Ortega – the warm, selfless and compassionate leader of a small but hearty little church; BEN stars as Father Marcus Lang – an intense ‘holy warrior’ carrying out an occupation that the church no longer acknowledges in public.
Geena Davis, Kurt Egyiawan, Brianne Howey and Hannah Kasula will also star in the show. Congrats BEN!
