Sony Pictures TV Developing ‘Weird NJ’ Horror-Comedy

by Jayson Drury

The small screen is about to get a lot weirder.

Sony Pictures Television this week picked up the rights to a live-action horror-comedy based on Weird NJ magazine (a publication that chronicle the weird events and local legends of the Garden State), according to a report on Deadline.

The project–created by screenwriter Kiernan Valla (Little Demon) and producer David Kauffman for Vertigo Entertainment–reportedly will follow an estranged family battling each other–as well as “supernatural forces of evil set on destroying New Jersey, and then the world,” according to the logline.

Described as being a cross between Stranger Things and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, the show will use mythology and haunted locales in the magazines to create a scripted series. Casting choices and production schedules have not yet been announced.
