“Critters” TV Series is Happening!
It seems that we haven’t seen the last of those hungry little pest known as Crites, as Verizon’s go90 has ordered a TV series based around the porcupine like pests. “Critters: A New Binge,” will be a series adaptation of the cult classic feature films and is being produced by Blue Ribbon Content, the Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio.
If your thinking…”wow that just came outta nowhere!”, well it’s kinda been on the cards for around three years now, ever since Blue Ribbon Content first opened its doors back in 2014. It’s taken them quite awhile to find a way of adapting New Line Cinemas cult hit series into a solid story.
Variety reported the news with a short synopsis of the project.
In “Critters: A New Binge,” the critters return to Earth in search of one of their kin, who was left behind years ago during an earlier mission. They land in Burbank, Calif., where they wreak havoc on a group of high schoolers and their families. Jordan Rubin, Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan will write and executive produce, with Rubin also directing. Rupert Harvey and Barry Opper, from the original “Critters” film franchise, are producers. The series is produced by Abominable Pictures in association with Blue Ribbon Content for Verizon.
