Collinwood Rises Again for Dark Shadows: Reincarnation


Deadline reported exclusively on September 9 that The CW and Warner Bros. Television will develop Dark Shadows: Reincarnation, a one-hour gothic horror drama based on the classic ABC daytime soap opera.

The pilot will be written by Mark B. Perry (Revenge, Ghost Whisperer), who will serve as executive producer with Amasia Entertainment’s Michael Helfant, Bradley Gallo and Tracy Mercer, along with Tracy Curtis and Cathy Curtis, daughters of original series creator Dan Curtis.

Per the article: “The re-imagined show will be a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror. The intention here is to harken back to the original, which was so popular it actually saw Shakespearean actor Jonathan Frid [pictured] become as popular in the teen magazines as the young heartthrobs of the moment, for his role as the vampire Barnabas Collins.”
