The CW is looking to adapt one of the literary realms created by the great imaginer, Clive Barker.

According to /Film, a TV series adaptation of Clive Barker's 1987 dark fantasy novel, Weaveworld, is in development at The CW. Barker is attached as an executive producer for the adaptation, which is set to be penned and produced by Jack Kenny (Warehouse 13).

The series is already lined up to be different from the source material, with the following synopsis teased:

"In the TV adaptation, an app designer teams up with a young pastry chef who has just discovered that she is destined to be guardian of a mythological realm that can be accessed through a portal in an old Savannah mansion. Together, they fight an epic battle with evil forces who are vying for control of the magical world."

Time will tell whether or not The CW will greenlight the Weaveworld TV series down the line, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details. Do you want to see Barker's fantasy horror novel adapted for the small screen? Do you think The CW is a good fit for the project?
