TNT officially announce that they are moving forward on the Firestarter TV Series title The Shop. The Shop Season 1 will take place 20 years after the Firestarter (1984) movie. That puts us in 2004 and will focus on the Department of Scientific Intelligence. Will we see Drew Barrymore in a cameo, who knows? Producing the TV series will be James Middleton (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronincles), James Paglia (Eureka) and Robbie Thompson (CW’s Supernatural).
Based on characters created by Stephen King, this supernatural thriller centers on The Shop, a mysterious organization that once exploited the pyrokinetic abilities of a young girl named Charlie McGee. Twenty years after bringing the organization to its knees in a blaze of fire, Charlie has been tracked down by one of its former members, Henry Talbot. Talbot introduces Charlie to a group of people just like her, all products of The Shop with their own unique abilities. It turns out The Shop is very much alive, bigger and badder than ever, and its dark experiments are unleashing terrifying new entities on the world. It’s now up to Talbot, Charlie and the rest of the team to find The Shop and destroy it for good.
