Crypt TV, the company behind Facebook Watch’s The Birch, is making its first animated horror series for the digital service.
Woman In The Book will star Diane Guerrero, star of DC’s Doom Patrol and Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black.
The Latinx series is multilingual, using both Spanish and English, and follows the lives of three estranged siblings who reunite at an aging Mexican hacienda to wrestle for their inheritance, but inadvertently unleash a book-bound horror upon them that has plagued their family for generations.
Joining Guerrero in the series are Alfonso Herrera (The Chosen), Jose Ruiz-Gonzales (Sanitarium) and Bryan Greenberg (How To Make It In America).
Production will begin later this month and it is set to air in early summer 2021. It is based on a 2016 Crypt TV digital series produced by Allison Vanore and written and directed by Justin Martinez, who will both serve as co-producers.
Crypt TV’s COO Darren Brandl said, “This is the first of many television animated series Crypt plans to launch and we couldn’t have imagined a more talented partner than Guerrero to voice the leading role, and Starburns to lead the animation of this special show built for our global Spanish speaking audience on Facebook Watch.”
