SyFy Orders Superstition, Your New Favorite Show About a Creepy Small Town, To Series
There’s nothing creepier than a small town full of secrets which might explain why Syfy ordered Superstition to a series of 13 episodes. The show centers on the Mosley family, who on the only funeral home in a fictional town just outside of New Orleans. The kicker? As keeps of the dead, they also hold all of the town’s secrets and history. Since this is SyFy, there’s obviously more to the story.
For one, it’s known for its haunted houses, elevated graveyards, offbeat townsfolk and long history of supernatural phenomena. According to Deadline, it also serves as a “landing patch” for the “world’s darkest manifestations of fear,” thanks to an ancient creature named The Dredge. So is this Syfy’s version of a Hellmouth? I’d venture to think so.
The show will be produced by both Mario Van Peebles (New Jack City, Empire) and Barry Gordon (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). “The incredible things we used to do in independent film, we can now do in television. This is truly a golden era for exciting, provocative television,” Van Peebles said, per Variety.
Gordon added, “Superstition is an intelligent, boundary-pushing genre series rich in supernatural lore and myths, featuring an eccentric family who have an unusual connection to an otherworldly plane, and the dark force that unleashes the demons, creatures and monsters that haunt our nightmares.”
Joel Anderson Thompson (House, Battlestar Galactica) will act as the showrunner and Laurence Andries (Six Feet Under, Alias, Supernatural) will executive produce.
