For years it was said that Clive Barker's novel, Weaveworld would be too problematic to ever adapt to the screen because of the settings, locations and intense special effects that it would call for in order to make it happen successfully. In the last couple of decades there have been several attempts to take it to the screen as a miniseries, but sadly they never came to fruition.

Much to the delight of fans of the novel everywhere, it was recently announced that The CW is in fact currently developing a series adaptation of Clive Barker's 1987 horror/fantasy novel. It is said that the show will be a drama and will be a more modern version of novel, in which an app designer will team up with a pastry chef in Georgia, who has recently discovered that she is destined to be the guardian of a mythical world that can be accessed by a portal in an old Savannah mansion. Together, they will have to fight the evil forces that are trying to gain control of the magical world, and keep it safe.

It is also rumored that Barker himself is set to executive produce the the series that is being adapted for the screen by Jack Kenney (Warehouse 13 writer and producer), who will also be executive producer.

There's no word yet on how long it might be before we can expect to see this actually premiere, and at this time there is no cast information to share, but you can be assured that HoTS staff will get the information to you as soon as it becomes available to us.
