Weavewold: CW developing series based on Clive Barker novel

Posted on

The CW has found great success with the horror/fantasy genre, so it’s no surprise that the network is developing a series based on Clive Barker’s novel Weaveworld.

With Barker signed on as an executive producer, the series is set to follow an app designer who teams up with a young pastry chef. But the duo is much more than their job titles might indicate. Specifically, the pastry chef is destined to be guardian of a mythological realm that can be accessed through a portal in an old Savannah mansion — a skill they don’t teach in culinary school.
