NBC Is the Latest Net to Take a Stab at Elusive Horror Comedy Project

Jan 30, 2015  •  Post A Comment

NBC hopes to succeed where ABC failed in two recent attempts, with an adaptation of the Australian horror comedy “Strange Calls.” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the Peacock Network gave out a pilot order for the project from Aaron Kaplan.

“Twice developed by ABC, the NBC take again hails from prolific producer Aaron Kaplan and his Kapital Entertainment banner,” THR notes. “The single-camera comedy centers on an affable but down-on-his-luck young police officer who is transferred to a rural town where — with the help of a peculiar, elderly night watchman — he starts to realize the town has a bizarre supernatural underbelly.”
