A&E is pairing up with producer Michael Bay for a new pilot with a supernatural twist.
EW confirms that Occult, written by James Wong (American Horror Story, X-Files), has been given a cast-contingent pilot order from the network, which today also renewed its drama The Glades.
The show, which is still in its early stages, centers on an FBI agent who returns to work after an extended absence, stemming from a breakdown he experienced while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Upon his return, he’s placed on a new occult-centric task force with a new partner, who specializes in the subject.
Earlier this summer, A&E ordered another spooky drama, which is based off Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Vera Farmiga is set to play the notorious Mrs. Bates.
