The potential series based on Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart was first revealed last June. "The idea is to create an elevated continuation and expansion of the well-established Hellraiser mythology," says Deadline's Mike Fleming Jr. "It is by no means a remake, but rather assumes the past mythology to be a given. The centerpiece remains Pinhead, the pin cushion-headed merciless leader of the Cenobites, the formerly humans-turned-demons that live in an extra-dimensional realm and are activated through a puzzle box called the Lament Configuration. The Cenobites come from hell to harvest human souls and keep balance between good and evil." Green is expected to film the pilot and several other episodes. Mark Verheiden and Michael Dougherty will write the series, while Danny McBride and his producing partner Jody Hill will serve as executive producers.
