Legendary director John Carpenter (Halloween) is developing four TV shows with his wife and frequent producer, Sandy King Carpenter.

“Right now, there’s four series waiting to go to network,” the latter revealed during her appearance on the most recent episode of the horror podcast, Killer POV. “As far as I’m concerned, we’ll do all of them. I mean, they’re great, and they’re different from anything that’s out there, and they again push the boundaries of what’s horror. [John] would be directing pilots and we would be executive producing them. There’s sci-fi, there’s horror, there’s one that I guess would be [a] sci fi-horror futuristic kind of thing. They’re all across the board. I think they’ll fulfill what people expect out of him by also being unpredictable.”

Although Carpenter is best know as a big screen auteur, he has a number of small screen directing credits, including the 1979 TV movie, Elvis, and two episodes of Showtime’s Masters of Horror anthology show.

Sandy King Carpenter also hinted on Killer POV that Carpenter, who has composed the scores for nearly all of his films, might be playing one or more live shows in the U.S. It has already been confirmed that the director will perform concerts in Iceland and the U.K. next year.

“I have a feeling there may be other chances [to see him],” she said. “But I have a feeling I’ll also be killed if I say anything.”
