French show Les Revenants aka The Returned has created quite a stir for Channel 4. The supernatural drama about a group of dead people returning to their small Alpine village is chilling and very watchable.
Paul Abbott’s production company AbbottVision is working on a UK adaptation which Abbott will write and produce. Definitely no truth to the rumour that he is changing the setting to a Manchester housing estate though!
It’s not expected to start shooting until next year and as yet the project is not attached to any broadcaster.
Meanwhile the French version still has another six episodes to run.
