Entertainment One To Develop Psychological Thriller Series with Paul WS Anderson and Jeremy Bolt

Talented Newcomer Creator Adam D'Alba to Write Series

TORONTO/LOS ANGELES - Nov. 29, 2011 - Leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne) has joined forces with the dynamic and innovative team of Paul WS Anderson and Jeremy Bolt to develop a new one-hour psychological thriller series for television, THE REEL. The series spec was brought to eOne by talented first-time writer, Adam D'Alba.

In this "found footage" series, a young documentarian searches for evidence of the supernatural. His first case concerns the mysterious last days of two teenagers and a serial killer, known as the Mirror Mask Killer, who uses various forms of psychological torment to exact bloody vengeance on its victims. THE REEL combines supernatural shocks in a case-per-week format that leads viewers through a season long mystery.

"Adam D'Alba's vision for the show and the opportunity to partner with Anderson and Bolt, made it impossible not to jump on board this project" said Noreen Halpern, President Dramatic Programming, eOne Television. "We're thrilled to be involved with THE REEL; it's exactly the kind of strong, creative and compelling material we look for."

Marking THE REEL as his first television project, the series is created and written by Adam D'Alba who has written in the horror genre since the fourth grade when he staged an adaptation of an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark. THE REEL is Executive Produced by Paul WS Anderson and Jeremy Bolt who successfully collaborated on previous films such as the box-office hit Resident Evil franchise including its newest installment Resident Evil 5 which is currently in production as well as the horror cult favorite, Event Horizon starring Laurence Fishburne and Sam Neill. eOne's John Morayniss (The Firm, Hung), Noreen Halpern (Rookie Blue, Call Me Fitz) and Michael Rosenberg (Hung, The Riches) will also serve as Executive Producers.

"When we read Adam's script we were genuinely disturbed by the story and fascinated by the idea of a found footage TV show," said Paul WS Anderson and Jeremy Bolt. "We are very grateful to the innovative eOne team for turning the idea into a reality."

Entertainment One has a strong presence in production and distribution of television programming, with nine television series currently airing on primetime cable and broadcast networks including the highly-acclaimed The Walking Dead on AMC, Hung on HBO, audience-favorite Rookie Blue on ABC, preschool-phenom Peppa Pig on Nick Jr., Call Me Fitz starring Jason Priestley for DirecTV, Haven for Syfy, the recently premiered Hell on Wheels for AMC, which debuted with the second-highest ratings in the network's history and stars Anson Mount and Common, as well as the highly-anticipated The Firm for NBC, starring Josh Lucas and Juliette Lewis, set to air January 8th, 2011.
