Clive Barker’s Weaveworld TV adaptation is pushing forward at The CW. A new writer, yet to be named, has been called to work on a different adaptation of the 1987 book. Clive Barker will serve as executive producer with Angela Mancuso for CBS TV Studios. The modern retelling will focus on “a young pastry chef who has just discovered that she is destined to be guardian of a mythological realm that can be accessed through a portal in an old Savannah mansion.”
From Goodreads: Barker turns from his usual horror to epic-length fantasy for this account of the Fugue, a magical land inhabited by descendants of supernatural beings who once shared the earth with humans. The Fugue has been woven into a carpet for protection against those who would destroy it; the death of its guardian occasions a battle between good and particularly repulsive evil forces for control of the Fugue. Weaveworld is rich with memorable characters, exciting situations, and pockets of Barker’s trademark horror.
