Previously announced projects include the upcoming Vampire Academy series, debuting later this year, and Dead Day with Kevin Williamson, as well as The Girls on the Bus for HBO Max and Confessions for Netflix.

New in development include Clifton, Douglass Medical, Freeman, Stay Gold and This Savage Song. Find out more about each of these projects below…

Clifton, based on the novel “Running Out of Time” by Margaret Peterson Haddix, “follows 17-year-old Jazzie Smith, who was born and raised in the idyllic, island village of Clifton – a sanctuary for runaway slaves and others who fled the United States at the height of the Civil War. When a mysterious stranger from the mainland washes up on shore, Jazzie learns a truth about the island’s origins that shatters everything she thought she knew to be true.” This is being developed for Peacock.

Douglass Medical will follow “Dr. Vanessa Pilgrimm who when she suffers a devastating professional scandal, she’s forced to return home to Washington, D.C. to build a new life as Associate Chief of Emergency Medicine at Douglass University Hospital – a struggling teaching hospital on the campus of a historically Black college. The only problem is the job comes with whispers of nepotism, pressure from her mother who is the Dean of Douglass’ Medical School, and a reckoning with an 18-year-old secret.”

Freeman centers “around a family that moves to a small, picturesque town in Georgia after acquiring a lucrative inheritance, including the mysterious house known as Freeman Manor. It’s soon discovered that there are mysteries and darkness hidden within the walls and the town at large that go back generations.”

Stay Gold is based on Tobly McSmith‘s novel, and is a “romantic dramedy about a transgender teenager who begins his senior year of high school struggling to establish a new identity in the face of a new school and environment, while trying to win the love of the girl of his dreams.”

Last but not least, This Savage Song is based on the novel by Victoria Schwab, who is adapting alongside Julie. It’s a “romantic horror fantasy about two teens in a broken world, where violent acts breed actual monsters.”

So far, Douglass Medical, Freeman, Stay Gold and This Savage Song do not have network homes yet, as they are still in development. Stay tuned as more information comes out!
