Reveille and Sci-Fi team up on Marvel duo

Reveille, the outfit set up by ex-WMA exec Ben Silverman, has been greenlit by US network Sci-Fi Channel to produce two new pilot projects, both based on Marvel Comics properties.

Sci-Fi Channel has closed a deal with Universal Television Group sibling Reveille to develop small-screen adaptations of Brother Voodoo and 1000 Days, marking the first joint-venture between the sister companies.

Both projects will be executive produced by Reveille head Silverman, Marvel Studios ceo Avi Arad and Rick Ungar, president of Marvel Characters Group.

Brother Voodoo, a two-hour movie/back-door pilot, will be a live-action drama centring on the adventures of psychologist and voodoo priest. Hans Rodionoff (Clive Barker’s Saint Sinner) is attached as the writer.

Marvel Comics’ Strikeforce: Morituri will be translated into a live-action two-hour back-door pilot movie called 1000 Days, adapted by scribes Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. Set in the near future, the film follows a group of soldiers who gain enhanced abilities.

Meanwhile, Universal Domestic Television's roster includes the launch of next fall’s talk show Fergie, and returning hits such as Maury, The Jerry Springer Show, Crossing Over with John Edward, Blind Date and The 5th Wheel.
