NIGHTBREED TV Adaptation From Morgan Creek And Writer Clive Barker In The Works At SyFy

A small-screen take on Clive Barker's novel Cabal is reportedly in the works for SyFy. Like the 90s movie adaptation, the series will be called Knightbreed, and has Barker on board to oversee the project.

According to Deadline, there's a TV series based on Clive Barker's Nightbreed in the works at SyFy from writer Josh Stolberg (Jigsaw, Piranha), Morgan Creek Entertainment and Universal Cable Prods.

If you're unfamiliar with Barker's novel Cabal or the underrated movie adaptation, it focuses on a troubled young man named Aaron Boon who dreams of vicisting the mythical city of Midian. Framed for a series of grisly murders and shot down by the cops, Boon is resurrected by Midian's monstrous inhabitants and joins them as they defend the gates of the city against the "real monsters".

It sounds like this upcoming series will be taking a few liberties with the source material, however.


"Nightbreed follows a group of underground half-human/half-monsters seeking to find a new refuge and home after their original hiding place is destroyed. Leading these efforts is a recently turned reluctant hero who not only is adjusting to his new supernatural status but also is dealing with the grief and mystery surrounding the death of his fiancée. Will this group band together despite being hunted and persecuted by humans who find their “otherness” to be frightening?"

There's definitely a lot of potential here and the story is a timely one, but the fact that it's airing on SyFy will probably be cause for some trepidation.
