Alan Wake TV Series Put Into Development With Peter Calloway, Sam Lake

Alan Wake TV Series Put Into Development With Peter Calloway, Sam Lake

Joining those ranks will be the critically acclaimed horror series Alan Wake.

An Alan Wake live-action television series is in development and Peter Calloway (Legion) will take on writing and showrunner duties. In an interview with Variety, Harlan noted that Alan Wake's own TV inspirations partially drove the decision. 'That was Sam's vision. "It was influenced by The Twilight Zone, Secret Window, Hitchcock, Northern Exposure, a lot of US television", Contradiction partner Thomas Harlan said. "This is his baby".

Remedy released the original Alan Wake on Xbox 360 and PC in 2010 and later followed it up with the 2012's Alan Wake's American Nightmare.

This is easier said than done however, as Wake quickly finds himself facing off against malevolent, shadow-like creatures in events that appear to have been plucked right out of the pages of his latest novel. The influence of television even makes its way into the game with the way Alan Wake was structured episodically and in-game television programs making their way into the game, which ended up selling 4.5 million copies.

Despite positive reviews, Alan Wake has never received a true sequel. While there have been no subsequent entries in the series since, Lake said in a 2015 interview (also with Variety) that he had bigger plans for the franchise.

"Definitely what we have mapped out is a longer thing than the first game and a sequel; there is more to it", Lake said.

Remedy has teamed up with Contradiction Films to bring the darkness imbued world of Alan Wake to TV. "In many ways, we see the universe as a bigger thing". He also said that the story of the original game will serve as a baseline for the story of the TV show and it will then begin to expand and grow from there.

"The Alan Wake TV show is due to be shopped around to a number of studios by Contradiction Films partner Tomas Harlan in October, with Calloways" full pitch apparently already garnering interest from certain parties.
