Jennifer Lynch (Hiss, Chained, Boxing Helena, Despite the Gods) has been tapped to direct Eli Roth‘s (executive producer) WE television series, South of Hell. She won’t be directing each and every episode, though, as Rachel Talalay (Doctor Who, Tank Girl) will take the reins for some episodes, and Roth, himself, is exptected to direct the pilot.
Mena Suvari takes on the dual role of Maria Abascal and her inner demon, Abigail. The cast also includes Zachary Booth, Bill Irwin, Drew Moerlein, Lamman Rucker, Paulina Singer, Lydia Hearst, Slate Holmgren, and Lauren Velez.
South of Hell Synopsis:
Maria Abascal (Suvari), a stunning demon-hunter-for-hire whose power stems from within. Like those she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.
Matt Lambert penned the premiere episode. James Manos, Jr. (Dexter, The Shield, The Sopranos) is executive producer and showrunner. Other executive producers include Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister), Gerard Bocaccio, Stewart Till, Stein, and Roth.
