Sarah Hay (Flesh and Bone), Cheyenne Haynes (Camping) and Haley Tju (Bella and the Bulldogs) are set as series regulars opposite Tyler Posey and Kiele Sanchez in The Lost Boys pilot, from Warner Bros TV, Spondoolie Prods and Gulfstream TV, the CW’s series adaptation of the iconic 1987 Warner Bros horror comedy movie.
Written by Heather Mitchell and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, The Lost Boys is set in sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, brothers Michael (Posey) and Sam Emerson move to Santa Carla with their mother, Lucy (Sanchez), who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers soon find themselves being drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.
Hay will portray Mollie. Turned into a vampire by David, Mollie has become her maker’s rival for leadership of the vampire gang. She travels in a small pack with her eternally 8-year-old son, Laddie, and a guardian, Hiram, who’s there to make sure she doesn’t get into too much trouble.
Haynes and Tju will portray the Frog Sisters, Liza and Cassie, respectively. Sharp, cool and lightly Goth, the Frog Sisters are teenage locals who work at Santa Carla’s comic-book store. Until Sam arrives, they think they’re the only ones aware of the darkness in this town.
Previously announced Medalion Rahimi and Dakota Shapiro also star.
Mitchell executive produces with Rob Thomas and Dan Etheridge of Spondoolie and Mike Karz and Bill Bindley of Gulfstream. Spondoolie’s Rebecca Franko produces along with Gulfstream’s Juliana Janes.
