The "found footage" TV drama now in development is based on a spec script from first-time writer Adam D'Alba.

TORONTO - Paul W.S. Anderson and Jeremy Bolt, who collaborated on Resident Evil 5 now shooting in Toronto, are back working with the Canadians on a potential “found footage” TV series.

Anderson and Bolton are teaming up with Entertainment One to develop a one hour psychological thriller, The Reel, based on a TV series spec script brought to the Canadian producer by rookie writer Adam D’Alba.

“When we read Adam’s script, we were genuinely disturbed by the story and fascinated by the idea of a found footage TV show,” Anderson and Bolt said in a statement.

The Reel portrays a young documentarian pursuing evidence of the supernatural, and uncovering the case of two teenagers and a serial killer who use psychological torment to exact bloody vengeance on victims.

The TV project is executive produced by Anderson, Bolt and Entertainment One’s John Morayniss, Noreen Halpern and Michael Rosenberg.
