Producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein are looking to scripted television to increase their media offerings, and they have several scripted shows in the works. Among the TV series we could be seeing from the Weinstein Company in the near future: a Sin City series and a Frank Darabont-led miniseries based on The Mist.
The Weinsteins spoke to the New York Times about their television plans. Bob Weinstein's Dimension brand is working on a previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, as well as developing a 10-episode The Mist series with Frank Darabont. Bob Weinstein is also hoping to launch a Sin City TV series with Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez to follow on the heels of next year's Sin City film sequel. Also on the Weinstein agenda are a 10-episode detective drama set in ancient Egypt called Book of the Dead, a 10-episode 10 Commandments miniseries, a martial arts-filled Marco Polo, and 14-episode adaptation of War and Peace.
