Kevin Bacon has confirmed to Screen Daily that not only pilot of the show is confirmed, but it has found a home on cable channel Syfy.
“We are going to do a pilot for Syfy,” Bacon confirmed. “It’s the only character I’ve ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later. It [‘Tremors’] is a really good movie. I don’t go back and watch my movies but because we were doing this one, I had to go back and look at it. It’s just the idea of this loser who is living a very ordinary life and has an extraordinary experience with these monsters and becomes, for a moment, a hero.”
Plans for the Tremors TV series hail from Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions. Andrew Miller, the creator of The CW‘s The Secret Circle, is attached to the script. Plot details have not yet been revealed, but it appears that the new Tremors TV series will maintain continuity with at least the first film in the franchise and will return the story’s setting to Perfection, Nevada.
