Life Time Orders Television Series Sequel To ‘The Omen’

The series will be in six parts and is to be executive produced by 'Walking Dead' veteran Glen Mazzara and Fox Television Studios.

Perhaps one of my favorite movie series to come out of the late 1970s and early 1980s was ‘The Omen’ movies.

Over the years we have seen a few things happen such as a reboot of the original film a number of years back, which just didn’t hit the mark for me personally and a fourth Omen film made in the 2001, which featured Damien’s daughter.

Now its been revealed that Life Time and doing a television sequel to ‘The Omen,’ which they are calling ‘Damion,’ which was the name of the second film in the original trilogy.

The series will be in six parts and is to be executive produced by ‘Walking Dead’ veteran Glen Mazzara and Fox Television Studios.

The show will premiere on Lifetime in 2015, with Ross Fineman and Pancho Mansfield also executive producing.

“We are thrilled to be bringing a contemporary version of ‘The Omen’s’ Damien Thorn back to the screen,” blurbs Lifetime EVP Rob Sharenow. “Glen Mazzara has re-imagined him as a dark, romantic, anti-hero and this fresh take blends complex characters with premium storytelling to make something truly original.”

Adds Fox TV Studios SVP Nancy Cotton, “‘The Omen’ is a jewel in the crown of the Fox features library; we’re gratified and eager to bring a new iteration of ‘Damien’ and this iconic story to television – and to a new audience – through the vision of Glen Mazzara.”
