Syfy Visits "Harrow County" for Dark Horse Horror Adaptation

Syfy is putting into development a drama based on "Harrow County," the Dark Horse Comics horror series by Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook.

Deadline reports that Becky Kirsch, who's worked on the cable channel's "12 Monkeys" and "Dominion," will write the project.

"Harrow County" was named among the properties in the first-look deal announced in July between Dark Horse and Universal Cable Productions. However, this latest news means the project is actually moving forward.

Debuting in May, "Harrow County" centers on Emmy, who's always known the dark woods surrounding her home crawled with ghosts, goblins and the restless dead. But on the eve of her 18th birthday, she learns she's connected to the creatures, and to the land itself, in a way she never imagined: She's the reincarnation of a powerful witch who was put to death on the day Emmy was born. And now the townsfolk intend to kill her too.

Adaptations of "The Umbrella Academy," "Back Up" and "Concrete" were also mentioned as part of the Dark Horse/Universal deal, but "Harrow County" appears to be the first to move forward.
