Deadline is reporting that Mena Suvari is finalizing a deal to play the lead in WE tv‘s South Of Hell. The show, from top horror producers Jason Blum and Eli Roth has an eight-episode straight-to-series order for a 2015 premiere.
South Of Hell focuses on Maria Abascal (Suvari), a stunning demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within. Like those she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.
