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."

I’ll watch. Can’t be any worse than NBC’s “Revelations”, can it?
Or did I just jinx the thing?
I don’t know, but it does sound kind of cool. Then again, so did ‘Point Pleasant’.
Sounds like Twin Peaks meets Brazil meets Fandom.
If they can pull it off, it should be interesting.
