‘Halloween’ TV Rights Go To Miramax Following Bidding War

by Thomas Tuna

Larger-than-life horror is slashing its way to the small screen.

Miramax this week snagged the TV rights to the iconic Halloween franchise, with plans to create a new “cinematic universe” that would encompass the films and a television series, according to a report on Deadline.

The film franchise–controlled by Tracas International Films and Malek Akkad–will, if all goes well, become a TV series developed and co-produced by Trancas. No details on a creative team have been revealed at this early date.

Miramax head of global TV Marc Helwig will oversee the franchise switchover, in close collaboration with Akkad.

This team-up will continue the relationship Trancas already has with the Halloween franchise, having produced the recent David Gordon Green Halloween trilogy.
