M. Night Shyamalan to Produce Straight-to-Series Thriller for Apple

M. Night Shyamalan is heading to Apple.

The streaming service has given a straight-to-series order to a psychological thriller series from writer Tony Basgallop that Shyamalan will executive produce. Plot details for the series are being kept under wraps. The half-hour series has received a 10-episode order, with Shyamalan also set to direct the first episode.

The series will be produced by Shyamalan’s Blinding Edge Pictures with Ashwin Rajan serving as executive producer. Jason Blumenthal, Todd Black and Steve Tisch of Escape Artists will also executive produce, with Taylor Latham co-executive producing.

This project will be Shyamalan’s second foray into television. He previously executive produced the Fox series “Wayward Pines,” which recently ended after two seasons. He most recently wrote, produced, and directed the hit film “Split” and is preparing the sequel “Glass,” both of which tie into his 2000 film “Unbreakable.” He is also behind blockbusters like “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs.”

Basgallop’s recent credits include “Berlin Station,” “24: Legacy,” and “24: Live Another Day.” He is also known for his work on shows like “Inside Men,” “Hotel Babylon” (which he created), “EastEnders,” and “To the Ends of the Earth.”

This marks the latest high-profile project in Apple’s ever-growing originals slate. The company has given out several straight-to-series orders to date, including a morning show drama from Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon and the Damian Chazelle drama announced in January. Apple is also prepping a reboot of “Amazing Stories” from executive producer Steven Spielberg. An untitled space race drama from Ron Moore, the drama “See” from Steven Knight and Francis Lawrence, and the immigrant anthology series “Little America” from Kumail Nanjiana, Emily V. Gordon, and Lee Eisenberg are also in the works.
