A television show inspired by Capcom's Resident Evil series is in the early stages of development. "Arklay," named after the mountains near Raccoon City where the mansion incident took place, comes from creator Shawn Christopher Lebert and production company Mance Media.
Here's the pitch:
"When Detective James Reinhardt is thrust into a series of bizarre homicides, he unravels the city is hiding a dark conspiracy. Learning a fatal virus is connected to it all, Reinhardt discovers it’s already coursing through him. With time no longer on his side, he must solve the conspiracy to save his own life."
It seems unlikely that this project ever gets off the ground, and would be unsurprising if we were to never hear about the concept ever again. Still, it's fun to think about. I mean, a Resident Evil television show couldn't possibly be worse than the movies, could it?
