A&E have ordered a supernatural drama pilot called Occult from Transformers director Michael Bay and The X-Files alum James Wong, Deadline reports.
Evoking parallels with seriables like The X-Files and Fringe,Occult follows an “FBI agent who returns from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with an agent with her own complicated backstory who specializes in the occult. Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force.”
Bay and Wong will executive produce with Platinum Dunes’ Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. At this time there is no studio attached to the project.
