Blumhouse Television is continuing its relationship with Quibi as it brings to life another horror/thriller for the unique streamer.
Quibi–which presents short, 10-minute slices of entertainment–will again team with Blumhouse on Nine Bodies in a Mexican Morgue, as reported by Deadline.
Series creator Anthony Horowitz (Midsomer Murders, Foyle’s War) has been tapped as screenwriter for the new show, which is the third series produced by Blumhouse Television for Quibi. The drama Wolves and Villagers is already in development, and Ten Weeks will follow later this year on Quibi.
Quibi and Blumhouse, in a joint statement this week, said they were announcing “Nine Bodies in a Mexican Morgue (working title), a new scripted series produced by Blumhouse Television. Anthony Horowitz–the best-selling author of the Alex Rider teen spy series and well-known writer for British film and television–serves as creator/showrunner and executive producer.”
The show–according to the official synopsis–will start when a small plane crashes in a Mexican jungle and “nine complete strangers find themselves lost and alone in 500 square miles of rainforest. One by one, they’re targeted, and they know that the murderer has to be among them. But who is it? And why do they have to die?”
Jason Blum, Jeremy Gold and Marci Wiseman from Blumhouse Television will serve as executive producers. In addition to its television projects , Blumhouse Productions also has produced such feature film micro-budget standouts as The Invisible Man, The Purge and Get Out.
