Margot Robbie and her LuckyChap Entertainment are developing a TV series based on Elizabeth Massie’s ‘Ameri-Scares’ YA horror book series, which are each based on a local “historical event, folktale, legend, of myth unique to that particular state.” The books are aimed at children age 8-13. The TV adaptation, which will be produced with Assemble and Warner Horizon, will be a family-friendly horror anthology “with a road-trip spirit: Every episode would take place in a different state and center on notorious local legends or spooky historical events.”

Assembly Media’s Brendan Deneen added:

“As fans of horror fiction that appeals to both teens and adults alike, we knew as soon as we read Ameri-Scares that Elizabeth had created something very special and of-the-moment. We’re thrilled to be working with LuckyChap and Warner Horizon on this spooky new series.”
