NBC is tapping into Universal Pictures' horror catalog once again by developing a TV series based on the 2010 feature film The Wolfman, which starred Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. That film was a remake of the 1941 classic The Wolf Man that starred Lon Chaney Jr. as the title character.
Dracula head writer and executive producer Daniel Knauf is writing the pilot script and executive producing. The show will tackle themes of being a man and a human, centering on Lawrence Talbott, who suffers from an ancient curse that transforms him into a vicious werewolf when a full moon appears.
Scott Stuber, who produced The Wolfman movie, will serve as executive producer alongside Daniel Knauf and Quan Phung. No production schedule was given, but if the network orders The Wolfman to series, it will likely find a home on its Friday night block of supernatural-themed programming, which includes Grimm and Dracula.
Daniel Knauf is also developing another project for NBC, an untitled series that follows six governesses who use their supernatural powers to control modern-day Los Angeles out of their elite Hancock Park women's club.
