Amazon Studios has put into development a proposed supernatural drama called “Tether” from Kevin Hamedani (“Chosen”), Travis Best (“The Saviors”), and Daniel Dae Kim and his 3AD production company. Written by Hamedani and Betz, “Tether” follows the terrifying journey of Madelyn Woods, a woman driven to find her kidnapped husband and son and extract revenge on those who hurt them and murdered her. Now a ghost, and tethered to the house she died in, Madelyn must find a way to escape her supernatural prison and save the ones she loves.
Hamedani and Betz will serve as showrunners and executive producers. Kim, 3AD’s Head of Development John Cheng, and executive Tara Bohn also will executive produce. Amazon Studios head Jonathan Wax and executive Scott Farris will oversee for the streamer.
“Kevin and Travis have an incredible topical voice that uses narrative storytelling and genre to disrupt and illuminate. They have a purposeful strength in subverting expectations, showcasing unrepresented characters and worlds,” said Tara Bohn of 3AD. “As in Tether, they write about average people who consider themselves good, inclusive, and even progressive, who still fall prey to their own fears and prejudices.”
