Disney is working on a new series adaption of Victoria Schwab’s novel “City of Ghosts”, with ABC Signature and Searchlight Television working on the series.
“City of Ghosts” follows a young teenage girl, Cass, who finds herself embroiled in an epic battle between ghosts and humanity as she discovers powers to see a spectral world beyond “the Veil” and to fight the evil forces within. Cass accompanies her parents to Edinburgh, where they will host a TV show about the bloodiest chapters of history, and where she will discover her gifts in one of the most haunted places on earth.
Variety is reporting that David Lowery and Sehaj Sethi will be writing the adaptation, with Lowery also directing the series. Victoria Schwab will be an executive producer on the show and Sailor Bear’s Toby Halbrooks and James M. Johnston, Britt Poulton, and G-Base’s Danielle Robinson, Gerard Butler, and Alan Siegel.
The series is still in early development, so it might be a while until we have a release date for ABC/Hulu in the United States or on Disney+ as a “Star Original”.
