David S. Goyer plans to bring a little more magic to NBC.
Deadline reports the writer/director/producer will help adapt Peter Straub's 1980 novel Shadowland as a limited series.
The story focuses on friends Tom Flanagan and Del Nightingale, visit the latter's uncle Coleman for the summer. Coleman is widely known as a magician and illusionist, but the boys soon suspect he's using real sorcery.
Goyer teamed with The Sandman screenwriter Jack Thorne to collaborate on the teleplay.
Goyer is also working on NBC's Constantine, which debuts Oct. 24, and also optioned Christopher Golden's novel Snowblind, which is in the works.
