“Rachel Rising” tells the story of the titular young woman who awakens in a shallow grave and must solve the mystery of her own murder while exploring the mysteries of the supernaturally-afflicted small town where she lives. Those mysteries include a strange bond to an enigmatic blonde and a vicious child on a killing spree. “Rachel Rising” received a Best New Series nomination during last year’s Harvey Awards.
According to THR, Alcon Television Group has picked up the rights to produce and has it out to potential showrunners, with Moore on board as an executive producer. This would be the first project for Alcon in its ten months of existence.
So what do you think? Does this sound like a meaty, hour-long drama? Shades of “The Secret Cirlce” and “The Killing” (with a little “D.O.A.” thrown in)? I could see Syfy picking “Rachel Rising” up in a heartbeat–maybe the CW as well.
