Sam Raimi will develop new horror TV shows through his new company, Ghost House Television, setting William Hamm as the head.

The first show is the miniseries, The Taking, based on the Dean Koontz bestseller. Variety says Ghost House is still looking for a writer for the screenplay adaptation; they're looking for a quick turn around for a network pitch in January or early February. The book revolves around an apocalyptic rain that promotes an otherworldly invasion; it has as its unlikely heroes a husband and wife whose traumatic childhood may be key to beating evil.

Hamm is also working on what will now be Ghost House TV's first unscripted project, a haunted house reality-horror show at the CW; that could go into production by early spring.
