The CW and Warner Bros. TV are teaming on Dark Shadows: Reincarnation, a gothic horror drama based on the 1966-1971 ABC gothic horror soap opera created by Dan Curtis. The pilot will be written by Mark B. Perry, who's served as a producer on everything from The Wonder Years to One Tree Hill to Revenge. According to Deadline, "the re-imagined show will be a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror. The intention here is to harken back to the original, which was so popular it actually saw Shakespearean actor Jonathan Frid become as popular in the teen magazines as the young heartthrobs of the moment, for his role as the vampire Barnabas Collins." Dark Shadows has been revived several times before: as a short-lived 1991 NBC series, as a 2004 The WB pilot starring Jessica Chastain and as a 2012 Tim Burton-directed film starring Johnny Depp.
