Televisa Orders Sci-Fi Thriller ‘The Seventh Day’

Ten Episodes Ordered

Mexican media and telecommunications corporation Grupo Televisa has ordered 10 episodes of the sci-fi thriller “The Seventh Day” from writer-producer Scott Shepherd (“Deadzone,” “Haven”). This marks Televisa’s second high-volume episode commitment to an English-language series slated to be shot in Mexico following spy thriller “Duality,” starring Dougray Scott. Televisa USA’s Chris Philip will serve as an executive producer on both projects.

The logline: Set seven years after the Strangers decimated the planet, “The Seventh Day” follows Joad – who is half way around the world and one of the few left unharmed when most of humanity is obliterated – on his dangerous trek home to Nemo in the hope his wife waits for him. The journey with companions he reluctantly gains along the way takes them through a landscape equally beautiful and haunting, mysterious and magical. Filled with hope, horror and wonder, the sci-fi thriller presents a world we haven’t yet encountered but could just be around the corner.

No casting for “The Seventh Day” has been announced at present.
