Tremors on TV

Tremors reboot heading to TV with Kevin Bacon starring



Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions are developing a show based on the 1990 cult favorite about giant killer worms, a movie that spawned four direct-to-video sequels. There was a previous TV version, as well (the 13-episode Tremors: The Seriesthat aired on SciFi Channel in 2003).

Andrew Miller (The Secret Circle) has been tapped to write the adaptation.

Bacon’s involvement is particularly cool as the actor is returning to the franchise after 25 years. Bacon, who recently starred in Fox’s The Following, only appeared in the original Tremors (and doubtless turned down ample opportunities to be involved with the sequels). Bacon will reprise his character Valentine McKee and the setting will return to the fictional Nevada desert town of Perfection.

Earlier this year Bacon said he’d love to revisit the character. “I’d love to do something else with Tremors and revisit the character 25 years later,” he said. “Part of what’s great about that movie is there are next to no digital effects. The monsters are done with puppetry, and it’s still off, funny and scary — it’s a cool accomplishment.”

UCP and Blumhouse are currently shopping the project around to various networks and we’re told “multiple bidders” are interested. Obviously SciFi Channel’s new incarnation Syfy seems like one potential fit, but nowadays pretty much every network is interested in genre shows.

Just gonna copy/paste my comments from the article announcing this on Chud:


Michael Gross better be involved in pretty much every episode of this. Burt is more essential to the series than Graboids at this point. Michael Gross will die in that Atlanta Hawks hat!


Since they're shopping it around to various channels, why not Starz? Imagine the crossover potential!
