Carlton Cuse – whose recent hits include Bates Motel and The Strain – is returning to ABC, the home of his biggest hit, Lost.
The Golden Globe-winning writer, producer and director has signed a multiyear deal – his company, Genre Arts, will produce content across all network, cable and streaming platforms. Under the Genre Arts banner, Cuse will develop projects and collaborate with other writers to bring their visions to the screen under the new agreement.
Constantine, Hannibal and Grimm lead the way as NBC and Universal Television sets out to invade Comic-Con 2014. Panels are planned for these shows as well as Bates Motel and a yet-to-be-named Adult Swim series featuring Triumph the Insult Dog.
NBC will host the panels for Hannibal and The Blacklist, while Universal Television will host panels, Grimm, Bates Motel and the Adult Swim show. The Constantine panel will include a screening of the pilot. For further details, follow the jump.
How do you follow a six-season run on one of the biggest cult TV shows of all time? If you’re Carlton Cuse, you tackle the backstory of the most famous serial killer in film and TV history, Norman Bates. A&E’s newest scripted series, Bates Motel (Mondays, 10/9C), has a very promising premiere; an introduction that is both creepy and eerie without being the least bit supernatural.
