”Evil” Screening and Panel at Comic-Con

Fans feeling the gap from the loss of the TV show “The Exorcist” will want to check out the new show “Evil” coming to CBS. The creators of “The Good Wife” are looking at a high-concept show that deviates from a typical law procedural to explore whether crimes were performed by regular people or people who are possessed. The pilot was screened at SDCC, and while many horror fans may be wondering how creators known for “The Good Wife” are going to tackle a show like this, rest assured that the show is unexpectedly unnerving. Executive Producer Robert King notes that this show will not be a “possession of the week” and that this is definitely not the movie “The Exorcist.” He noted that “when there is a movie like “The Exocist,” it’s hard to do better than that” and they wanted to do something else and “explore the question” of what could really be happening and that it is “just as scary to deal with the scientific reality” of any terrible situation. read more
