The Exorcist TV series – what’s actually happening

The Exorcist is to be brought back to screen as a ten part TV series, however there has been some confusion and many Internet news sites are claiming that the series will not be made because William Peter Blatty, author of the original novel, screenwriter of the movie, and owner of the story rights to The Excorcist is not involved. Well we can put you all straight – The Exorcist TV series is not based on the William Blatty story, but rather on an Exorcist. However Blatty  based his story on a supposedly real event that took place in the Washington, D.C. area back in 1949, and the TV series is free to depict their own version of those events so there could be some connection, no matter how tenuous to the Exorcist movie franchise.

Sean Durkin, who wrote and directed the critically-loved indie Martha Marcy May Marlene, and Roy Lee, an executive producer of The Ring and The Departed, are directing and producing this Exorcist series


So there – that’s what’s happening.
