First Look at Eli Roth’s Supernatural Thriller ‘South of Hell’

If you love supernatural thrillers that come with some pedigree, you should check out WE tv’s upcoming series South of Hell. Described as “True Blood but with demons”, the show sees Maria Abascal (Mena Suvari) as a reluctant exorcist for hire.

Charleston, South Carolina is the most possessed city in the world.  Evil thrives there. Something with which 30-year-old exorcist Maria Abascal is intimately acquainted.  She wrestles demons for a living.  Especially Abigail, the one that lives within her.  The one who feeds on damned souls and who’s violated the laws of hell to live on earth—and live on, inside Maria.  Now, as they work as one, Maria will discover how personal her battle with evil has become and how far Abigail will go to protect them both.  It’s a journey where the unspeakable is just a heartbeat away.

Other acting talent joining Mena include Zachary Booth (“Keep the Lights On”), Bill Irwin (“CSI”), Drew Moerlein (“V/H/S”), Lamman Rucker (“Meet the Browns”), and Paulina Singer (“How to Make It In America”).

Booth plays Maria’s troubled brother and Irwin players her father, the leader of a devil worship cult called the Order of Everlasting. It sounds like there is enough turmoil in that family alone to make for an interesting TV series.

The premiere episode will be directed by Eli Roth (known for Hostel and Hemlock Grove among others). Other directors on-board include Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch’s daughter), Ti West (“House of the Devil,” “The Sacrament”), Rachel Talalay (“Doctor Who,” “Tank Girl”) and Jeremiah Chechik (“Helix,” “Reign”).

The show is set to premiere on WE tv in 2015.
