A&E Order Fringe-like Drama Pilot From Michael Bay


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.

    I guess that once the big screen adaptation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie was canned, Michael Bay has a lot of time on his hands.

    To compare his new project as having parallels to the much beloved X-Files and Fringe is not only laughable, but insulting to the 2 great shows.
