Pop has given an order for The Demons of Dorian Gunn, a half-hour scripted comedy pilot to be executive produced by Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter and Jax Media’s Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns. A January production start in New York City is planned.
Penned by Evan Greenspoon and Brandon Scott Jones, the project centers on disgraced New York socialite Dorian Gunn, who discovers he’s descended from a long line of demon hunters and is forced to abandon his life of leisure to protect humanity from monsters as they emerge from the gates of hell.
Kara Welker of Generate also executive produces along with Ritter via Ritter’s production company Silent Machine. John Skidmore is producer. Mike Poisson and Peggy Cheng from Silent Machine serve as co-executive producers.
“I am so thrilled for the opportunity to make The Demons of Dorian Gunn with the incredible creative team at Pop,” Ritter said. “Brandon and Evan are talented new voices who have impressed me endlessly through every step of development, and I am so excited to bring their fresh and funny script to life.”
