Variety reports that Rockne S. O’Bannon, creator of FARSCAPE and SEAQUEST, has sold a new pilot to the WB entitled CULT:
The two lead characters try to get to the bottom of a series of mysterious deaths and disappearances that may be linked to fans of a TV show called … "Cult."
The fictional "Cult" is a "very ‘Silence of the Lambs’/’Seven’-like thriller," O’Bannon said.
In addition to the usual die-hard Trekkie-like fan base, the fictional "Cult" also has "a whole other level of people watching and reaching out to each other. There’s a dangerous aspect to it."
Series leads will "try to figure out what this subculture is all about."
O’Bannon certainly knows a thing or two about "fandom."
