WE tv has begun production on its new supernatural series, South of Hell – with Mena Suvari in the lead role – exorcist Maria Abascal, who is more than she appears to be (and considering that she appears to be an exorcist, that’s saying something!).
The series also stars Zachary Booth (“Keep the Lights On”), Bill Irwin (“CSI”), Drew Moerlein (“V/H/S”), Lamman Rucker (“Meet the Browns”), and Paulina Singer (“How to Make It In America”), with recurring cast members Lydia Hearst (“Cabin Fever: Patient Zero”), Slate Holmgren (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) and Lauren Velez (“Dexter”).
South of Hell is produced by Sonar Entertainment and Blumhouse Television and the premiere is being directed by Eli Roth. The series is planned for a 2015 debut.
