Set in the Pacific Northwest, The Girl In The Woods follows Carrie’s escape from her mysterious, cult-like colony that guards the world from monsters hidden behind a secret door within the woods.
Starring Stefanie Scott (Carrie), Misha Osherovich (Nolan), Sofia Bryant (Tasha), Will Yun Lee (Arthur Dean), Kylie Liya Page (Sara), Reed Diamond (Hosea) and Leonard Roberts (Khalil). Directed by Krysten Ritter (“Jessica Jones”) and Jacob Chase (“Come Play”).
The 8 episode series is an adaptation of the Crypt TV series that starred Kal Penn and Peyton List. Ritter will be directing 4 episodes of the series.
“Girl In The Woods is Crypt’s most ambitious adaption of our IP to date. We are thrilled to have such special talents in Krysten Ritter, Casey Modderno and Jacob Chase bringing this series to life with grounded characters taking on meaningful themes and plenty of scares” said Jack Davis. “Crypt prides itself on telling norm breaking, innovative genre stories and our audience is going to love watching this show on Peacock, who has been a spectacular partner.”
“As a huge fan of horror and all things coming of age, this is one of the most exciting pilot scripts I’ve gotten my hands on. I fell in love with the characters, the writing, the setting, and the themes the second I read it,” added Krysten Ritter. “I also loved Crypt’s original short The Door in the Woods and the universe they are building. I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to helm this badass female driven monster hunting series with Jane Casey Modderno, Crypt and Peacock.”
The Girl In The Woods will arrive on Peacock October 21st.
