James Wan Developing Horror Series ‘Teacup’ For Peacock

by Thomas Tuna

More small-screen horror is on the way from James Wan.

The horror hitmaker–think Saw and The Conjuring on the big screen and Swamp Thing and Archive 81 on the TV side–is currently adapting Robert McCammon’s Stinger as a half-hour series for Peacock, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new series–entitled Teacup–is described as being in the development stage and is being written by Ian McCulloch (Yellowstone). There is no word at this early juncture about a director or casting choices.

Teacup will follow “a disparate group of people on a Texas ranch who must come together in the face of a mysterious threat,” according to the logline.

The 2015 novel Stinger–which takes place during a 24-hour period in Inferno, Texas–deals with “an unidentified spacecraft that crashes in the desert outside town, followed by a second craft bearing an alien being who will soon be known as Stinger,” according to the synopsis.

It seems that Stinger is an interstellar hunter on a deadly mission who brings with him “an endless array of technological marvels and an infinite capacity for destruction that threaten Inferno, its inhabitants and the world beyond.”

The series–produced by Universal Content Productions–is led by executive producers Wan, McCulloch, Michael Clear, E.L. Katz and Rob Hackett.
