Pictured is a teaser for We TV’s South of Hell – a supernatural series that will have episodes directed by such horror icons as Eli Roth and Ti West and featuring a cast that includes Mena Suvari, Bill Irwin and Lauren Velez.
For a series description and director and cast lists, follow the jump. South of Hell premieres in 2015.
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.
Sonar Entertainment (recently rebranded from RHI Entertainment), producers of the Treasure Island mini-series, announced today that production has begun on three mini-series – Ring of Fire, Eve of Destruction and Delete – part of a projected ‘Disaster Pack Collection’ of five mini-series about various end-of-the-world scenarios.
Ring of Fire, starring Michael Vartan (Alias) and Terry O’Quinn (Lost) deals with a chain of volcanic eruptions around the world; Eve of Destruction, starring Steven Weber (Falling Skies, Wilfred) and Christina Cox (Blood Ties), is centered on a hijacked attempt to create a source of unlimited energy, and Delete, starring Keir Gilchrist (United States of Tara) and Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Eureka), posits an internet turned sentient – and anti-humanity.
