Starz has put in development Trapped, a half-hour horror comedy series from Mila Kunis’ Orchard Farm Productions. Kunis is executive producing alongside cult genre filmmaker Rob Zombie (Halloween), who also will direct.
Created and written by Joey Slamon (Arrested Development), Trapped takes places over a single night in the home of a wealthy family under attack by a murderous cult. Orchard Farm’s Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis and Lisa Sterbakov also executive produce.
“We’re excited to work in partnership with Rob Zombie as well as Mila Kunis and her Orchard Farm Productions associates Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis and Lisa Sterbakov on this horror comedy series,” Starz Managing Director Carmi Zlotnik said.
Starz retains all domestic and international multiplatform rights.
Orchard Farm, repped by CAA and Patti Felker, has a deal at ABC Studios and recently landed a put pilot commitment at Fox for dad comedy Champion.
Multi-platinum recording artist-turned film director Zombie, repped by UTA, attorney David Fox and Spectacle Entertainment, made his mark directing small budget profitable genre films like House Of 1000 Corpses, two Halloween films, Lords Of Salem and the currently shooting 31, about five people kidnapped on the eve of Halloween and placed in a lethal funhouse called Murder World.
Slamon is repped by Gersh and Peter Nichols.
