The former Walking Dead showrunner is developing Damien, a sequel series to 1976's The Omen...

Former showrunner for The Walking Dead, Glen Mazzara's next TV project will be a Lifetime series following up on the events of 1976 film The Omen.

Mazzara is developing Damien for the network, which will centre around the character of Damien Thorn as an adult "faced with a series of macabre events and who must face his true destiny as the antichrist". 

The show will have stiff competition as TV horror, not just from Mazzara's old stomping ground, but also from the likes of Showtime's very impressive Penny Dreadful, FX's American Horror Story, the psychological uneasiness of HannibalBates Motel and more. What those last two properties have shown at least, is that reworking an existing franchise for television can work wonders.
