'Child's Play' Is Coming to TV From Movie Series Creator

The eight-part series, which hails from movie series creator Don Mancini and franchise producer David Kirschner, will serve as a continuation of the events in last year's 'Cult of Chucky'.

AceShowbiz - More than 30 years after its debut, "Child's Play" is set to come to the small screen. The planned project hails from Don Mancini, the creator of evil doll Chucky, alongside franchise producer David Kirschner.

Mancini, who wrote the screenplay and directed "Seed of Chucky", "Curse of Chucky" and "Cult of Chucky", tells Bloody Disgusting that the plan is to develop an eight-part series. Each episode will be in an hour-long with the series serving as a continuation of the events in last year's "Cult of Chucky".

He further reveals that the series will be having "dark and disturbing" tone. "We plan to use 'Child's Play' in the title," Mancini explains. "We want to definitely signal that we are going dark, darker than ever before. It's going to be very creepy."

In addition, Brad Dourif has been confirmed to return for the TV series to lend his voice to the doll which is possessed by a soul of a serial killer.

Kirschner adds that the series won't be a reboot, but a continuation story instead. He also reflects on his three-decade relationship with Mancini. "I don't think there's a relationship that lasted this long," he says. "I'm incredibly excited about the series and to explore a world in which we've never done before. Don has taken the franchise in a wonderfully frightening direction. He seems to outdo himself every time."

The classic horror movie was first released in November of 1988. It was later followed by seven movies with "Cult of Chucky" being the latest one. Starring returning actors Dourif, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jennifer Tilly and Summer H. Howell, the seventh installment of the horror movie series sees Chucky returning while Nica Pierce is spending most of her time in a mental institution after being framed by the doll for the murders of her family.
