A&E is beefing up their scripted department - and they are beefing it up with scary stuff. Bates Motel is a mere week away from its premiere, and a new pilot has just gone into production, called, simply, Occult.
From Hollywood Reporter: "Occult revolves around Dolan, an FBI agent who has returned from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with Blair, an agent with her own complicated backstory who specializes in the occult. Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force." Josh Lucas (American Psycho, Session 9) will play Dolan, while Lynn Collins (True Blood, Blood Creek) will play Blair.
Sounds a little X-File-y does it? Well, it is written by X-Files alum James Wong. He will also produce alongside Platinum Dunes duo Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, and Michael Bay.
