Starz is teaming up with Mila Kunis and director Rob Zombie to develop Trapped, a half-hour horror comedy series that takes places over a single night in the home of a wealthy family under attack by a murderous cult.
Trapped was created by Joey Slamon who is penning the scripts for the project, which is set up at Kunis’ production company Orchard Farm Productions. Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis, Lisa Sterbakov, Mila Kunis and Rob Zombie will executive produce, while Zombie is also attached to direct
“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,” said Starz Managing Director Carmi Zlotnik.
After steering clear of the genre for many years, Starz has been making a push back into scripted comedy of late with shows such as Survivor’s Remorse and the Patrick Stewart starrer Blunt Talk. Trapped also follows in the foot-steps of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Starz’s hour-long comedy-drama starring Bruce Campbell which based on the feature film series of the same name.
