Universal Cable Productions has inked an overall development deal with John Carpenter. Under the new pact, the Halloween director will executive produce scripted programming with UCP for the NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment portfolio, external networks and streaming services, along with his producing partner Sandy King under their Storm King Productions banner.

The announcement was made by Dawn Olmstead, EVP Development at UCP.

UCP and Carpenter are currently in development with Syfy on Tales For A Halloween Night, based on Carpenter’s graphic-novel anthology of horror stories. A writer search is underway.

Additionally, UCP and Carpenter are developing Nightside, based on the literary series by Simon R. Green, with Jill Blotevogel (Scream: The TV Series) attached to write the script.

 “John Carpenter is an incredible creator whose dark imagination has left an indelible mark in film and in our dreams,” said Olmstead. “We are thrilled to have a master of the horror genre join UCP.”

“I’m excited to partner with Universal Cable Productions on this venture into television. On one hand it’s a return home to Universal where I have fond memories, and on the other it’s a step into the future with great new creative partners in programming,” said Carpenter.
